Marxist doctrine states that steps are required to create the utopian communist society. The eventual result of marxism’s destruction of the system of property was for the purpose of creating an anarchic society where everyone had what they wanted, and wanted nothing more – the fixed-pie fantasy. The state was only necessary as a first step in order to make it possible to get to that utopia. Socialism was simply the first step in reaching the marxian utopian dream of the non-propertarian, anarchic, left libertarian society. Socialism means ‘state ownership of the means of production’. Communism means that there is no property whatsoever or the need for it. Communism was the next evolutionary step after Socialism. People tend to treat communism and socialism as synonyms but they are not. They are a sequential strategy for achieving the marxist utopian society.
[callout]Once you understand how ridiculously impossible communism is, you can also understand how ridiculously impossible anarcho capitalist libertarianism is.[/callout]
Once you understand how ridiculously impossible communism is, you can also understand how ridiculously impossible anarcho capitalist libertarianism is. Socialism is impossible because of the problem of knowledge (distributed and fragmentary), prices (provide the information system), and incentives (encourage people to produce). Communism is impossible because humans never cease to want new stimulation and because we are unequal, and our reproductive strategy insures rotation such that we shall never be equal. So effectively, communism is impossible because populations need property in order to produce prosperity. Anarcho capitalism is impossible because of the problem of creating and maintaining complex forms of property. Men will no more stop seeking better mates and more stimuli, than they will stop seeking to benefit by fraud theft and violence. We need political institutions to channel men’s actions into market activity rather than hedonism or predation. We need very few of those institutions. and the fewer the better. But we need them.
If you think communism is impossible, then logically anarcho capitalism is impossible. They both depend on a belief in the nature of man that is counter to self-reflection, observation and history.
