Down with private property.

“We’re going to take on these phony property rights advocates and kick their butts.”

- Debbie Sease


We’ll solve global warming if we abolish private property.

“The answer to global warming is in the abolition of private property and production for human need. A socialist world would place an enormous priority on alternative energy sources. This is what ecologically-minded socialists have been exploring for quite some time now.”

- Louis Proyect


There should be no private property.

“I think [private property] should be in the public domain. We should get it all. Be unreasonable. You can do it. Yesterday’s heresy is today’s common wisdom. So I would say, let’s take it back, let’s take it all back.”

- Brock Evans , November 1990.


Don’t believe in God or private property.

“The two big mistakes [are] the belief . . . that there’s a man in the sky with ten things he doesn’t want you to do and you’ll burn for a long time if you do them . . . and private property, which I think is at the core of our failure as a species.”

- George Carlin , March/April 1997.


Rejecting private property.

“We reject the idea of private property.”

- Peter Berle


The state is all-important.

“Every man’s life is at the call of the nation and so must be every man’s property. We are living today in a highly organized state of socialism. The state is all; the individual is of importance only as he contributes to the welfare of the state. His property is [his] only as the state does not need it. He must hold his life and his possessions at the call of the state.”

- Bernard Baruch , August 7, 1918.
