Anarchism Without Adjectives
According to his line of argument, the fact that commons are typically regulated by custom determining how much each individual is entitled to take, suggests that they are already in a sense divided among a number of owners according to a possessory notion of ownership.
This would also imply that private property, or at least possession, could be a naturally occurring mental abstraction. It would follow that it makes little difference as to if resources are communally owned, or privately partitioned. According to the original libertine philosophy, one cannot claim as ones own what one cannot actually utilize....
One problem people have with philanthropy, or the concept of collectivism is the issue of moochers. When considering both, people will point to the good-for-nothings who have no intention of working, but would still drain society’s resources. Such people can only exist within a socialist welfare state. In a libertarian (free of economic coercion as well; an individual cannot utilize an entire communities resources) society, with a relatively educated population to keep up the threat of revolt, no charity would be willing to pay for the upkeep of such people (the good-for-nothings). The Salvation Army, for example, charges a small amount of rent, and requires a certain amount of volunteer work from residents. In a collectivist society (which could easily exist within a larger libertarian society) the community would soon notice how unproductive said moochers are. In a gift economy, common personal disdain can go a long way.
Conclusion? No economic system is inherently evil. Nor is any economic system inherently oppressive. All oppression stems from acts of coercion. Acts of coercion are justified with an over inflated ego, and fueled by a disproportionate greed. Contrary to what you see on MTV, you don’t have to be an asshole all the time.
