Much is said against redistributionism in the US. Such statements seem to presuppose an original legitimate 'distribution' from the hand of the deity perhaps. The current state of affairs is the result of a redistribution in which the wealth created by the people is redistributed up the pyramid to corporations, and their most obedient and or well-placed lackeys. In fact, wealth as such is a result of an original violent 'reappropriation' of the wealth of the Earth, and of the natural liberty of men women and animals. Thus, any crime is justified in attacking property for it is simply unchallenged murder.

Yeah! No one with anything on this earth ever did anything to deserve it! The people who claim to "work hard" are really just thieves! Why should we work for the things we use???

Once upon a time I worked at a research center of a large corporation. Most of the professionals worked 60 hours a week or more. We came up with the patents for new products or improvements in manufacturing processes that increased efficiency (and profits). There was a hostile takeover. Big-cheese managers got golden parachutes. The technical people and support staff at Research got laid off. That was before COBRA so we lost our health insurance when we lost our jobs. One of the engineers had a son with leukemia. Does this situation sound OK to you?

Of course not?? Why would you think I would be okay with that?

No, the people who own everything are thieves; they took it...

people did work hard but they are not the ones with the lion's share of the 'goods'
