    Tyranny Of Ownership

    Okay, there is nothing wrong with ownership, but I believe nature ought to regulate ownership, not Government, or at least only as far as natural. Because we all need to have ownership over some stuff, where we can do what we please with what we own. Like owning food, modest...

    Simply put, Libertarian Capitalism still has

    government involvement, only in a different way. With a strictly capitalist system, without any socialist attributes, the Government works solely in the interest in protecting the property of the property owners. So essentially, the Government is still working for someones...

    Anacho-Capitalist Are Not True Anarchist And This Is A Descriptive Post As To Why Not A No True Scotsman

    Another common apologetic defense I seem to encounter often of Anarcho-Capitalism Is as follows: Your criticism is invalid because if The Government did not exist the laws that allow you to refer to a corporation as a corporation would no longer exist. This defense fails for a...

    Im getting fed up with the ownership morality.
