Anarchism: Property VS Possession VS Anti-property. What type of Anarchist are you?Submitted by conalmc on Sat, 02/22/2014 - 16:08
Many of you have probably already read this one, but found an interesting article regarding the different Anarchist views on property, possession and ownership (or lack there of).
There is a proposed solution to unite the AnCaps, Anarcho-pluralists (pan anarchists) and the more left leaning social anarchists of the world.
Full article here:
"PROPERTY IS A TROUBLESOME issue. It is not only a matter of definition, but a matter of values. Some anarchists value property as a guarantee for freedom and prosperity, whereas other anarchists see property as a means of oppression and therefore wish to see it abolished completely. And there are other anarchists taking a “middle stance”--both pro and con--through advocating only possession. There seems to be no way around this issue, but this essay introduces a new theory combining the arguments put forward by anarchists in all three camps. Can this theory unite the anarchist movement?"
