The ‘Private Property’ Demon behind Inequality

golden-calf

In a video I will share this weekend, I heard the following phrase: “In the criminal justice system the people are repressed by two separate but equally important important groups: the police who defend private property and the policy makers who criminalize disobedience”. When I heard “the police who defend private property and the policy makers…” my mind spun ahead completing the sentence with “the policy makers who define private property”.

Why did that pop up in my head? Well it is because of the immoral and cruelly corrupt system of human life into which I was born and in which I therefore have had to utterly waste my short time on Earth. It arranges and justifies its inequality and its abuse of people – and even the destruction of our life-supporting environment – on the concept of private property.

And what is that concept of private property? How is it defined for us?

After 16 years of no such thing, I finally managed to go on a vacation intended to heal my deteriorated body and relax my strained mood. A cheap last-minute deal of a flight and low-cost room in a hostel had to do. On our trip, my accompanying family member and I got into a talk with another vacationer. He turned out to have been robbed on his vacation. We invited him to a warm meal which brightened his day having had to live on cheap loaves of bread for a week.   Continue reading “The Putrescent Core of Capitalism”
