Capitalist Paradise Regional Message Board
On the Declaration Of Independence I love Jefferson's obvious plagiarism in it. He decided to take John Locke's idea of "life, liberty, and property" and change it to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness". The United States is founded on Locke's idea more than we think. Despite the change property still continues to be an important part of our nation.
On Locke's building it also shows why socialism is wrong. We have our natural rights that Locke laid out. For socialism to exist the government first has to eliminate that third right of property to seize the means of production. However to assure that seizure the government will have to violate your rights to life and liberty.
What about Democratic Socialism?
The whole point of the change (quite glaring to any educated person at the time) was that property was not a founding principle. In fact it was in conflict with the other two, given that a very large proportion of property in the country at the time was in the form of slaves. Furthermore, the rights of life and liberty are absolute (and can only be lost under due process), while property rights are not. The society has an automatic claim on a portion of everybody's property and can take as much as it needs with a simple vote (and without any due process). Ben Franklin made this point very explicitly.
Socialism is indeed wrong. But not because of anybody's philosophical writings, but simply because we saw its results.
Socialism is wrong so long as it is forced upon someone. It may not be wrong naturally speaking but when a person is forced to participate in a socialist system that force is what is wrong. The reason why it isn't wrong to force someone to participate in a free-market capitalist system is that in a free-market capitalist system one gets exactly what they pay for. They are not propped up at the expense of others nor can they be denied the product of their labors. Free-market capitalism is the essence of freedom and so it cannot be wrong and even allows for the freedom of individuals to voluntarily participate in association with like-minded people in a constructed socialist, communist, or fascist system.
Actually people are being forced to participate in a free-market capitalist system. Free markets naturally lead to the emergence of winners and losers, some winners become really big, and many of them will want to engage in anti-competitive behaviors in order to increase their profits even further, thus effectively destroying free markets from within. They have be to forced to refrain from anti-competitive behavior. E.g. you use your weight in the market to threaten your suppliers not to sell anything to your smaller competitors - you go to jail, and if you resist arrest, you get shot. That's brute force, is not it?
I didn't say they weren't I only said it wasn't immoral to force people into a system of merit, accountability, and freedom.
Well, I won't disagree with that. But many libertarians will. They want a free-market capitalist system in which nobody is forced to play by the free-market rules, and such system inevitably degenerates into an oligarchy.
While I disagree with your conclusion I understand how some libertarians could push your opinion in that direction. Libertarians don't like my ideas cause they are too conservative and Republicans don't like my ideas cause they are too libertarian. Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, these are a few of my favorite people that I agree with on a lot of issues. I don't endorse most people but those three I can endorse. With any luck, Lee will be the next supreme court justice.
