...the first five (5) planks of the Communist Manifesto relate to the destruction of private property?
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
Zoning laws & property taxes are the leading edge on this one. The moment you submit to either zoning or property taxes, you no longer control 'your' property. This bleeds quickly beyond merely real estate. Once a man assumes the authority and power to tell you what you may and may not do with your own body, you are a slave. Full F'n Stop.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
Started in 1913. Are not the fruits of your labor 'personal property'? Not according to Marxist/Communists/Liberals/Democrats/Republicans/et cetera. If you can be forced to share any of your property, you can be forced to share it all.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheritance.
That which is not passed through to inheritors rotates back to the State. Thus, that property is removed from 'Private' circulation.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
Start with eminent domain. Progress to "Asset Forfeiture" for "Crimes" they say you committed.
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
The Fed and central banks around the world, and your corner Credit Union answer to the same drummer, eventually. When 'private property' is almost entirely owned by the banks, (they hold most of the notes in America), and the economy implodes - they own the property. You can squat there, as long as you have more guns and friends than do they. But make no mistake, you do not own it.
The cornerstone of Liberty is Private Property.
Who owns you?
Communists - in all their flavors - are the problem. Individual people who align themselves with the ideology - whether they call themselves Liberals or Politburo Hardliners - are the Enemies of Liberty.
