Property: A Social Approach

New Media  | 31 de julio de 2013  | Vistas: 24

Spencer MacCallum talks about society and property. Society is an organization of living individuals organized through the market and as his grandfather would describe it, it’s the fraction of a population that is reciprocally exchanging goods and services, contractually. Property, from an anthropological viewpoint, is the basis of social organization. MacCallum explains that property is different from possession and comments on its social approach by stating that the success of a society does not lie on shooting one another but by cooperating. He concludes by talking about taxation as a form of universal slavery and explains that society has not yet evolved to provide the necessary services to fulfill significant community needs, such as the settlement of disputes and security.
