The Ayn Rand Lexicon

Μπορείτε να το βρείτε σε αυτόν εδώ τον σύνδεσμο. ;)

Ένα από τα αγαπημένα μου quotes από το λήμμα socialism:

Both "socialism" and "fascism" involve the issue of property rights. The right to property is the right of use and disposal. Observe the difference in those two theories: socialism negates private property rights altogether, and advocates "the vesting of ownership and control" in the community as a whole, i.e., in the state; fascism leaves ownership in the hands of private individuals, but transfers control of the property to the government.

Ownership without control is a contradiction in terms: it means "property," without the right to use it or to dispose of it. It means that the citizens retain the responsibility of holding property, without any of its advantages, while the government acquires all the advantages without any of the responsibility.

In this respect, socialism is the more honest of the two theories. I say "more honest," not "better"—because, in practice, there is no difference between them: both come from the same collectivist-statist principle, both negate individual rights and subordinate the individual to the collective, both deliver the livelihood and the lives of the citizens into the power of an omnipotent government—and the differences between them are only a matter of time, degree, and superficial detail, such as the choice of slogans by which the rulers delude their enslaved subjects.

Καλά εντάξει. Ο καθένας βλέπει τα πράγματα όπως θέλει και τον βολέυει.

Προφανώς οι συγγραφείς του διαδικτυακού πονήματος δεν είχαν ιδέα για τον σοσιαλισμό, αφού υπάρχουν σοσιαλιστικές τάσεις που μιλούν για άμεση κατάργηση του κράτους, όπως ο αναρχισμός και ο κομμουνισμός μιλά για κατάργηση του κράτους και αυτός σε απώτερο στάδιο. Τουλάχιστον η Ayn Rand, έχοντας ζήσει στη Ρωσία, ήξερε και δυο πράγματα για το τι λέγανε οι επαναστάτες στην πατρίδα της, άλλο που στα έργα της εμφανίζονται μόνιμα κακοί, τριχωτοί και αξύριστοι.

Σοσιαλισμός ή Ναζισμός χωρίς κρατισμό;
Μάλλον δεν ελέγξατε τι σας δώσανε να καπνίσετε....

Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian

Dr. T είπε...

Nazi is short for National Socialism, and yet people still aren't convinced that it is socialist. The only differences between communism and Naziism is that the former is international, the latter national socialism, and that communism killed more people.
