I would prefer you to answer the questions asked as to your intent in these recent posts. Not to divert attention from the fact that you have not answered by asking further questions.
It is not acceptable to say in the face of oppression, well that's free will. Those who can in any way counter oppression at the cost of the free will of the oppressor should do so. If some have manipulated society to their advantage to the point that they have ownership of a very high percentage of the goods produced by society, especially to the point that many have nothing or nearly so, those with nearly everything must simply either be willing or be made by society to contribute to the welfare of others, free will or not. Particularly considering that the goods and services produced by society are being produced by the efforts of those who have little.
I suggest you study the economic theory of liberal, laissez-faire capitalism and how it resolves the issue of desires versus rights. You are mistaken if you believe goods are produced by society. They are produced IN society. There is a huge difference. The industrialist is not exploiting society. There ARE exploiters in society, but merely having wealth does not mean you have exploited anyone, nor does not having wealth mean someone took anything from you. The wealthy are, in many cases, simply the most productive people in a society, and the poor the least productive.
If you are taking the path of control as your ideal as Tom Campbell has described it, then you will not find a comfortable home here.
What is taxation if not control?
Now as previously asked, what is your intent here? Control versus freedom. Nazis sympathizer or simply explaining their delusional thinking?
Freedom. I'm absolutely NOT a nazi sympathizer.
The present problem is that you are being ambiguous in your postings and clarification of your intent would be appreciated.
It would help me to understand where the ambiguity lies. If it seems that I'm defending the nazis, it's probably because there is a flaw in your thinking process that perceives their way of thinking (altruistic collectivism) as good. That's not my fault. I'm not going to pretend the nazis were some sort of greedy selfish monsters just because that is the only kind of evil you people can recognize.
