I feel this is a misunderstanding on most people's part, about the nature of the economy. Some argue very intelligently in favor of absolutely free
markets. Others argue that private property ought to be done away with in its entirety! This is, apparently, an irreconcilable difference.
This is false. Let us examine what is the meaning of free markets, as opposed to 'capitalism.' Let us then examine what is meant by 'capitalism.'
We must examine what, exactly, is meant by 'capital,' or 'property.' Next we must investigate what, exactly, is meant by 'communism.'
An individual's 'capital' refers to property which that individual owns, as opposed to his peers owning. Thus a communist society is one in which
individuals share resources together, as if family. Yet this relationship is not bound to typical familial structure. It is bound by nothing other
than your locale, either physical or mental. Thus everything one enjoys out of 'private property' can be done in a communist society, yet we will
share this with those we love most, and enjoy spending time with the most. As we are together, sharing things, we will also work on and develop our
skills in whatever way we are suited.
So you can see the perfect harmony that is possible with this basic system. It is both a free market system and a communist system. In so doing, we
have created a system where 'communism' and 'capitalism' are reconciled in anarchist-fashion. This is the union which is required if we are to
truly transform the society on this Earth.
