Against private property?

Private property can make others envious and cause them to seize power to grab the property for themselves, or just to ensure that the other no longer have it. So, the way to prevent that, is to abolish the state.

Private property is natural

Private property is natural
Because nature is a place to die from starvation/thirst/exposure. So if, by investing energy, a being manages to find food (energy), it will protect that energy from beings tyhat did not. Example:
The cheetah: runs incrediblyfast – spending lots of energy – to catch a prey, then drags that catch into a tree out of reach of hungry hyenas.
The squirrel: hides nuts for eating during hard cold times
Parental love: parents are protective of their own genes
Love: partners are protective of THEIR partner (maybe, because the partner may help reproduce the genes)
Bees sacrfice their lives to protect the nest (sometimes callled hive), not out of generosity, but out of parental love. The queen is the only fertile one in the nest, all the other bees are related (share the same genes). Dawkins wrote about this, from the perspective of biology – genes, inheritance
Of course, ancoms (in the FB group Pure Anarchist Philosophies) discredit anarcho-communism by spectacularly, deliberately, even violently not understanding this.

A fatal flaw in anarcho-communism

There is an ongoing argument between Anarcho-capitalists and anarcho-communists. Ancoms claim ancaps weren’t real anarchists, because they permitted hierarchies; employer/employee-relations. That was not pure anarchism.
(As if society cares about purity; it is impossible to have thousands (never mind millions) live together harmoniously without private property; good fences make for good neighbours, by removing the possibility of erroneous confusion).
The fatal flaw in ancomism is, that they must enforce it; meaning hierarchy; it takes a Stalin to deny people the chance to express displeasure, perhaps even affect change.
Ancaps do not wish to impose their will upon anyone (sometimes, they wish they could), they simply respect the right to property everyone has.

North and south

North Korea is socialist; South Korea is wealthy.
It used to be a country where the factory workers toiled 12 hours per day, just like they do nowadays in Cambodia.
South Korea is rich enough to be able to afford better wotrkig conditions, shorter working times.
Cambodia is on its way to enrich itself. Sadly, it isn’t there yet, but give it time.

75 Arguments against socialism

Alright, I’ll bite: the 75 ways socialism has sixed-up the world and America:

The Military/Defense

there is no defense, and even if there were, it would only try to defend the jobs of the despots (and fail, just as all military defense does. It’s the BIGGEST EFFING LIE IN THE WORLD! (Even more so than climate change)


That’s right, thank scialism for your traffic jams, people!


Yeah, the black community is overjoyed with the state-funded (hence unaccountable) police.

Student Loans and Grants

studying isn’t very expensive, if people in Africa can afford to send their children to affordable (and good!) schools, then so should you.

Garbage Collection

What a pathetic argument…
If people want to get rid of their garbage, then someone looking to make a buck, will take it off their hands.

War – That’s right! War would not be possible without socialism. Your tax dollars are used to fight wars for your country

This is the strongest case against socialism ever. So your country (the political monstrosity) enjoys causing death and destruction, and the people forceds to pay for it, get killed in retaliation for it – erm, 9/11 anyone?

Also, without socialism the east-Germans would not have suffered under Stalin c.s. That happened because of the socially funded WW2.

Without socialism WW2 would not have happened. Since socialism is all about the abuse of power and the central banks (which Marx promoted, BTW) enabled the funding of the world wars. In the good ole days, wars stopped when one side ran out of money, it’s only in the age of the central bank that wars could grow so devastatingly as they did since 1914 – the German Kaiser chose to fund his war with borrowed money – so he ran  out and gad to resort to hyperinflation to pay back his loans.

That is capitalism for you: not about the abuse of power, but about increasing wealth – the exact opposite of war.

I know there are more arguments, but I don’t want to waste my time refuting all of them, the above should give enough inspiration.

Here are a few more, because I can’t let bad enough slide by:

Public Libraries

Yes. That place where you go to check out books from conservative authors telling you how horrible socialism is, is in fact socialism.

Erm, who goes to the library? Karl Marx was more or less the last one, wasn’t he? Libraries are overdfuded, money that could have gone to curing cancer/AIDS, but thanks to socialism, that’s not happening.

Student Loans and Grants

It is thanks to socialism, that college is frighteningly expensive. Because since 1965, DC protects private lenders from loss of (non-payment) of student loans, schools don’t feel any incentive to keep prices down. Burdening millions of students with crippling student debt: socialism impoverishes.
