The Capitalist Owns The Product Of Your Labor

Anarchist Opinion

The product of ones labor belongs to ones self. If you toil you maintain the right to the product of your labor. In capitalism the product of your labor belongs to another. The ‘liberty movement’ often looks at the ‘Philosophy of liberty’ for a foundation of belief and gives lip service to this concept. Logic is twisted to lead to the idea that certain people are entitled to the product of the labor of others.

They claim one owns the product of their labor then they take this to a conclusion that this will entitle them to the product of the labor of others.This is based on the current system which is defended and molded by the state.
