The Geniuses Who Believe Ownership of Private Property and Wealth are Crimes
Corollary: Everything Should Be Free
Let’s start here: As soon as a piece of land is no longer unexplored—as soon as someone sets foot on it—someone is going to own it.
It could be an individual, it could be a group, it could be a government.
It then becomes property.
Saying property is a crime is an attempt to contradict a fact of life.
Saying “the people” own the land/property, or “everybody” owns it, or “nobody” owns it is a fantasy. An unworkable fantasy.
Quite often, these claims are nothing more than power plays disguised as “greater good.” A group is trying to steal property from the owner.
And if they succeed, an interesting thing happens. They stop saying “everybody” owns what they just stole.
Communists have worked this con for a long time. The people own all property, but the people are represented by the Communist dictatorship. Except the dictatorship actually represents itself.
There are endless variations on this theme. For example, a billionaire who owns a mansion and an estate is promoting the idea that a humane government should control property and dispense it fairly—but not HIS mansion or HIS estate.
From private ownership of land comes private wealth. A farmer has acres of food crops. He employs workers. He sells his crop. This is not a magic act that comes into being with a snap of the fingers. The farmer builds for years.
Then a group of geniuses says this farmer is committing a crime through ownership and accumulation of wealth.
Translation: “We want what you have.”
Translation: “if we can somehow get what you have, we’ll own it and no one will take it away from us.”
Translation: “We’ll be just like the farmer. Except he built it and we stole it.”
The brain-addled among us confuse abuse of the private-property system with the need to abolish private property.
They believe abuse equals predestined systemic failure. And the solution, of course, is the transfer of all property to themselves, or “the government.”
Translation: “Take the property from the abusers and give it to us, and we’ll be the abusers.”
If you take a close look at large numbers of people who are actually victimized by the powers-that-be, you’ll see these people are being prevented from participating in PRIVATE OWNERSHIP and private wealth-building.
Which tells you what the solution is. The solution isn’t turning over all property to the government.
However, this simple picture is muddied by those who don’t want to work, don’t want to earn their own way. They just want to receive. They just want to steal.
The picture is also muddied by governments who refuse to prosecute the abusers of the private property system. For example, federal law enforcement has let Big Pharma off the hook for more than a century. The lethal crimes of those corporations have gone unpunished. They’ve made trillions of dollars poisoning the population with their drugs. That’s wealth-building through injuring and killing.
That’s not a systemic flaw in the system.
Obviously, if all of Pharma were taken out of the hands of its private owners and transferred to government—who has let Pharma off the hook—the situation is not going to improve.
If anything is systemic, it’s people. Meaning: no matter how society is organized, people are going lie, cheat, steal, and kill. Not all people. But some.
So which is a better organization? Private ownership of property and private wealth-building; or ownership of property and wealth at the top?
Fools choose the latter. Which is to say, they prefer centralized power to decentralized power. That’s what we’re basically talking about.
Do you want property and money owned by the government (and the elite people who own the government), or do you want property and money dispersed among individuals as widely as possible, through a system by which those individuals earn it?
Do you want centralization of economic power? Or decentralization?
“I want perfection.”
“I want a perfect system.”
“You mean I have to live and work and earn and risk? But that could be dangerous…”
True. Therefore, you might consider working at something you really want to work at. Since all work carries risk.
“I don’t like that.”
Some people don’t.
“I need the government!”
And the government needs you, as another brick laid on the millions of bricks that compose their tyranny.

Now that I have learned more about centralization of power and its parasitic operations on everyone and everything the more I desire decentralization of power.
And what ive been seeing is that they seem to be holding all of the keys at all of the doors to lawful freedom.
An example, I want to own a piece of land and create a life on it and create income from it. I have come up with a few ways.
But there is a difference between land ownership and real estate. I don't only want the structures and the tree on the land, I want the land. Nor do I want a Trust to just control it even with its benefits. I want to own it.
I just moved from Texas because a new law that you must do fingerprinting and background checks with the FBI to be able to have a license for business in Texas which means the state has given their power, their people, contractually over to the feds and which also creates the surveillance and police state. I want to own my own business, and applying and being granted one is not ownership, it is something else even prior to the state selling its people out to the feds. But hey, just like during covid lockdowns, a federal prison term, they say, whatever our Governor says, we do. Out of respect of coarse.
People think they own their property, their home and land but the deed says you are a tenant. That implies someone else owns it and you don't. That's kinda a red pill to folks that believe they own all of their stuff and I believe they should.
And how about you can't patent nature. So you make gmo foods. Then you eat those gmo foods. Then you become a gmo person. Then they can own you. Simply because you ate what they own. And yeah, the jab does the same from what I can see.
I just want to make my own way but I see they are holding the keys to the doors. And I don't like that saying I'm in the world but not of the world. What a cop out.
Another fatal flaw by these Dunning Kruger, modern communist/socialist centralized big government types is - the belief that human nature is evolving for the better , more sophisticated ,more magnanimous, and more enlightened n humane….. when the actual reverse is true !!!! Give any of these modern leftist/globalist dimwits totalitarian control, and the history books shall record yet another genocide /brutal murderous oppression….. The free market decentralized- each man works hard , economic success is based on his merits , workers keep what they earn, is the best ,most successful paradigm out there !
