Cooperation and Competition

Collapse )

The key to maximizing cooperation is to eliminate the negative sum games of predation that may happen between individuals. Which is exactly what individual property rights and only individual property rights can do. Any other political solution but opens a permanent war of all contenders against all other contenders about each and every resource over which individual property rights are denied, in which war the value of the resource is destroyed. And so, if we define Socialism as the dream of men cooperating with each other as much as possible, then Capitalism is indeed the utmost form of Socialism: Stygmergic Socialism (merci jesrad).
