A little perplexed by the toothbrush part, but resteemed anyways because fuck capitalism. Anarcho- or not. Also because it made me laugh.

Capitalist fan boys often confuse the notion of personal possessions and private property, its a common meme of there's to ask what if you want to use my toothbrush.

Oooh, okay. I get it now. When I googled the phrase with communism at the end I got way more information. 'Collectivizing' a toothbrush as means of production or public property is pretty wild. I've met some far-out hippie commune goers while living in Berkeley, but never that nutty. And while they usually share food and living quarters and stuff like that, everyone had usually either paid for, worked to procure, put in time for, or otherwise earned that food and space. It's funny cuz during my search, on Reddit I saw a post using Uber as an example of your personal possessions (le' car) being claimed a means for production in the name of capitalism. I worked as a driver myself for a bit and the wear and tear on my car along with the cost of gas ended up far outweighing any money I made working. Thanks for getting back to me on this btw. :)

Yeah, most people have no idea what communism is, (https://steemit.com/anarchism/@spacebeard/what-is-a-communist-society) umung other concepts i find capitalist fanboys also generally confused about the notion of a normativity and obectivity leading them to consider the political idea of property as being a real property of an object or territory. Ive spend quite a long time studying them and ive also found that about 90% of the community i've come in contact with hold morality to be objective aswell.
