IAN: Therein arises a key question:

Who is to determine the proper level of " need " ?
Each person measures their own need. I cannot know everything
about the specific needs of even those right around me, and
even less about the needs of people in the next city, county,
or country. However, for equitable distribution of wealth to
ever be a reality someone MUST have such GLOBAL knowledge
upon which to measure proper levels of "need."

That "someone" will be a central cabal of economic planners.
These planners will, by human nature, exploit the masses for
personal gain through economic / social control and command.

Private property claims can be enforced
locally, requiring only LOCAL knowledge.

ERGO: Private property does NOT
require a central State.

Collectivist social theory requires a central
cabal with GLOBAL knowledge, that is to say,
with knowledge derived from a broad section
of socail indicators and incomes, from which
"equitable" distributions are determined and
based upon which legal decrees are issued.

ERGO: Collectivized property
require a central State by design.

Furthermore, the collectivists theory of the
" socail contract, " that is defined as a
personal debt to the socail welfare that
abolishes any concept of private ownership,
weaves a logical and factual LEGAL web of
social debt that binds all people to one
another and in turn binds them to the
central cabal of planners that oversee
the allocation of social debt, who are
know as are "The People's" Party,
or the slave masters.

On the other hand:

The free market price system spontaneously transmits
the necessary information for local planers -- owners --
to adjust their activity toward to service of consumer,
i.e., socail, need. The free market society is run
by the invisible hand, the invisible hand is the
invisible planner, is the mind of the masses.
The free market is the spontaneous and
decentrally directed collective.
