Personal property of material and energy is possible.
Material and energy can be sold and used and consumed.
E.g. material for buildings or energy for activities.
We are not yet living in a post-scarcity world.
Personal work and personal costs for providing goods and services are still required.
Therefore personal property rights are still required.
Imagine you or the lustysociety had created wealth after work and costs.
How much of that wealth should be taken away and allocated by some other organization ? Taxes are theft and harmful because they enable unwanted activities and prevent wanted activities.
No tax to pay for fossil fuel and bad technologies.
No tax to pay the military and wars and other harmful activities.
No tax to pay for fraud and toxic banks.
No tax to pay for evil harmful politicians and their evil actions.
No tax as tool of evil harmful governments to enforce theft by taxes and misery and murder by wars and poverty. Taxes are part of a harmful system where private banks control public money and thus the economy.
No tax or mandatory fee to pay for evil corrupt mendacious governments and public service broadcasting.
No tax to pay for bad schools.
Taxpayers do not fund anything (2010-04-19).
The fundamental realignment of British society via fiscal austerity (2018-07-30).
Precarious private balance sheets driven by fiscal austerity is the problem (2018-09-17). No intellectual property (IP).
But respect of licenses to know who did what.
No theft of identity.
- Established companies have already enough advantages by being established.
- Big companies can spy on small companies.
- Big companies collude and use IP against smaller competitors.
Most companies are or will be victims of theft of IP anyway.
E.g. by cybercrime.
Only rich persons or companies can afford patents.
Only rich persons or companies can afford legal protection.
Money determines justice.
Example: Oracle vs Google.
An advanced society:
- Prevents modern poverty.
Persons know who did what and who to thank and who to support.
- Advances quicker and more efficiently without IP.
The value of a surface is based on a global trade system.
If X persons want surface S than surface S has the corresponding value.
In case of ambiguity, the current users have priority to keep the surface.
Computer systems are used:
- To declare the desire for arbitrary surfaces.
- To compute the value of each mm² of surface based on the number of persons who desire the mm².
- To allocate the surfaces to individual persons in a legally protected way.
Surfaces of buildings remain personal property until the value of the land surface or water surface under the building is greater than the value of the buildings.
In that case, the owner of the surface owns the immobile buildings and the previous owner must remove all mobile things.
The property of special surfaces and special buildings and the creation of surfaces over and under other surfaces is regulated by laws determined by a better legislature.
Why a different trade of surfaces
- A post-scarcity world must not be delayed or prevented by a non-egalitarian distribution of surfaces.
The distribution of surfaces by occupation, coercion, fraud or trade was never egalitarian (fair, morally acceptable, beneficial).
Distribution of surfaces will become even less egalitarian because:
The rich become richer.
Few owners could lend limited surfaces like kings with unreasonable profits.
- Local overpopulation requires migration.
- Climate warming requires migration.
- The rich become richer.
The lustysociety is only in favor of welfare paid by a specific fee.
The fee might be added to the price of sold goods and services.
The lustysociety is against taxes because tax money can be used for bad activities.
