In Defense of Private Property

  • Socialism: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbour.
  • Communism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then gives you some milk.
  • Fascism: You have two cows. You give them to the government, and the government then sells you some milk.
  • Nazism: You have two cows. The government takes both and shoots you.
  • Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull (and get more cows).
  • Your person;
  • Your body;
  • To eat;
  • To have and to hold;
  • To associate or not associate;
  • To trade or not to trade;
  • To travel;
  • and Your ability to live.
