RE: The heart of the "libertarian socialism" issue
Someone doesn't have to read books to understand that the fruits of my labor are mine to spend as I wish, and I cannot truly be free unless I own the land I improve. People who don't believe in private property are basically saying they want to make sure you can never secure your wealth and give it to other people upon your death. They want my children to reset and have to build their own wealth. No thanks. I'll pass. Why would I work as hard as I do to succeed if not to further improve the lives of my own children? I'm certainly not doing it for lazy strangers who are very unproductive.
