The illusion of Ownership

We like to think we own things…

But do we?

Do you have a car?  If so, do you owe money on it?  Can the person you owe money to take it away if you don’t pay them the money you owe?  So… who really owns the car?

Do you have a house?  If so, do you owe money on it?  Can the person you owe money to take it away if you don’t pay them the money you owe?  So… who really owns the car?

Do you have either of the above but owe no money on them?  If so, do you have to pay property taxes and or registration fees?  If so, can the agencies charged with collecting those take them away from you, or worse put you in jail, for not paying them?

So… who really owns your stuff?

I’ve long offered that Fascism is just a flavor of Socialism… because Fascism is exactly Socialism with the only difference being State Ownership and Control by ‘other’ means.

Am I wrong?
