    Filthy hippies are carrying their class warfare into their disgusting swarm and segregating. They want to "share" everything they don't own but don't want to "share" what they do own.
    Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil.

    Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:

    I don't think they're sufficiently self-aware to actually recognize that fact, let alone wonder about it.

    There is a real distinction between these two, FYI.

    When people say "personal property" they are referring to the things that you own which you use for yourself. You have them for some particular quality which they possess which is useful to you, which may be shelter, warmth, sustenance, entertainment, ect. This type of property includes your home, your vehicle, your artwork, your furniture, you toys, your computer, ect. ect. ect.

    When they say "private property", they are referring to Capital or the means of production. The ovens in a bakery are not used for feeding the owner of the oven, they are used for producing a commodity and sold for profit.


    Capitalism generally doesn't draw a distinction between these two, neither does feudalism or slavery.
