Private property in the means of production...

is aggression.

According to socialists.

This makes the point that libertarians (reasonably) can't just claim aggression and shut down the discussion: other people have other definitions of aggression.

(H/T to Samson Corwell for the link.)

NOTE: I disagree with socialists here. But this shows that one's notion of aggression needs to be argued for, not simply asserted.


  1. Absolutely. And libertarians (and socialists) often beg the question on that topic.

  2. A lot of political discussion is simply making certain assumptions self-evident, even when those assumptions are not self-evident to others.
