I've been getting into a debate about the question of anarchism (left and right, and even left vs right) One thing stands out above all in the current thoughts being exposed: people confuse possession for property.

In the past, property was clearly defined as State recognized possession of goods/services by a person of Title (aka nobility). This primarily meant land as property, but it included goods that came from agriculture and mining industries. As the 18/19th century anarchists realized that this possession was in name only. The laborers on the farms and those in the mines were the ones whom truly possessed the land and its wealth because they were the ones that made such wealth possible.

Basically, no labor meant no farms or mines nor the goods they yield. Karl Marx realized this too and attempted to formalize a theory of value that included labor, but the political implications of labor yielding wealth meant more than the theoretical concerns of how a price may be derived. Because if the farmer or the miner had a greater claim on the fruits of his labor, then why should the farmer or the miner give the fruits to the owner (so-called) of the farm or the mine? And did the so-called owner really own anything at all other than a formal claim? These questions are often avoided by right anarchists and even right libertarians because they expose the reality of exploitation that does occur on a regular basis in a capitalist society.

Make note, that this does not imply that the process of market exchange for a price leads to this sort of society of exploitation, but rather that other factors impede the progress that a free market may bring to that society. Examples of such impediments to progress come in the form of legal prohibitions on trade unions, private cooperatives, and other labor-focused economic organizations/services which the laborers desire (but the ruling class of capitalists fear) which exist throughout history to modern times. Even the Wagner Act which brought about the NLRB is meant to prevent "illegal" unions from forming or even organizing the workforce in some industries which have been deemed essential to "national security."  

Ultimately, the right anarchists and right libertarians have to integrate this dimension of tyranny into their political theories if they are to be considered serious about dealing with the State's effects on ourselves. Once they've done so, they can be seen as viable allies in ending tyranny itself.

Gone full retard? Only just now? I disagree. Rick Warren may believe that full retard is a choice, but I believe he was born that way. We should give him a big congrats for coming out. :3

Regardless of how people see the world, it's still hell being gender non-conforming or transgender in general.

Hmm I've been thinking about getting a laptop in place of my PC, but one thing seems like a general negative for laptops is the total lack of customization. Sure, Dell gives you some wiggle room, but getting a laptop with a dedicated GPU seems like a luxury to these folks. IMO that just doesn't make sense to me. Oh well, I'll just see if I can make my current PC (sans motherboard and power supply) fit with a microATX form factor. I just don't see myself upgrading this beast much more other than to get a huge 3TB HDD.

Well my parents moved the cat to my place. The poor thing is still scared. I'm not surprised considering the lack of familiar smells and sounds. I hope she'll get use to it. I got her some stuff to play with and a litter box. Right now, she's just hiding out in the bathroom.
