It’s not too often that I share videos that I find lying around the Web, mostly because I don’t watch that many videos; it’s not a medium that I’m terribly fond of. Occasionally though, something compels me to watch one. Corktageous recently linked to a video in which Thorsmitersaw pwns 1001Bolsheviks, on YouTube, with regards to taxes, government, the labor theory of value, and capitalist exploitation. All in about 5 minutes. Worth a gander if you’ve got time to spare. If not, here’s my favorite part:
…You do not gain the right to use a person’s property just because it is capable of transforming other resources into a form suitable for human use. Hey, and how do you solve this conundrum? jackass: Let’s say I make a hammer. Or let’s say I make hammer-making machine. These are both means of production so you cannot prevent others from using them.
OH BUT WAIT! I OWN THE PRODUCTS OF MY LABOR!
Holy shit! I guess your stupid fucking dichotomy falls apart at the goddamn seams, doesn’t it? Proudhon pointed this out ages ago…
