Someone on Twitter told me that part of my tag line, “socialist oligarchy”, was a dichotomy of terms. My immediate response was that that was an untrue statement, according to every socialist government which had ever existed.
But it is actually deeper than that: property is THE fundamental human right. What you have built, what you have worked for, naturally belongs to you, until you choose otherwise. To think differently is so evil, so alien, that it MUST be forced on people for it ever to be enacted.
No matter how many pseudo-intellectual academics swoon over the sophistry used to pitch socialism, it never happens until an “elite” have the legislative, military and judicial power to say “You have no right to own what you have made yourself. We are taking it for ourselves, to be handed out at our discretion, to buy votes to keep us in power. We now own you.”
