The Summary Of Four Socio-Economic Isms

By H. Skip Robinson © January 2021

Libertarianism can best be summed up as the legal inability of the bureaucracy and corporate powers to prey on the civilian population through taxation, regulations and fees, as legalized force and coercion are prohibited. All inalienable rights are equally protected by those within the entire population and equal justice under the law is best achieved as no privileges or preferences can be granted by the state to favor one individual over another individual or group. The system operates through voluntary associations and natural law via the non-aggression principle.

Socialism can best be summed up as the collusion of the bureaucracy and corporate powers attempts to take, through taxation, from the civilian population by giving some of that money they take, to those that vote for those politicians that are willing to tax the civilian population and redistribute their money to the bureaucracy and the wealthier special interests. Democracy and/or representative democracy are used to determine which inalienable rights are protected and which ones are usurped by the power structure. The system usually operates via a strong bureaucracy with the government-controlled courts using arbitrary determinations influenced by the various political ideologies with the most powerful political parties vying for power and control over taxation and the redistribution of wealth. Net Tax Recipients, those that get more money out of the public treasuries than they put in often vote against the Net Tax Payers, mostly those in the civilian population who put more money into the public treasuries than they take out.        

Fascism can best be summed up as the collusion of state and corporate powers, using force and coercion to prey on the civilian population via massive amounts of taxation and regulatory fees, using strong armed police powers. Most inalienable rights end up being usurped as more taxes and regulatory fees are needed and enacted to feed through various redistribution of wealth schemes the continuously growing power structure. The system also operates via a massive bureaucracy with the government-controlled courts using arbitrary determinations influenced by the various political ideologies and most powerful political party(ies).                                                         

Communism can best be summed up as the bureaucracy of the most powerful political party preying on the workforce using force and coercion, via regulations and mandates to pay those within the most powerful political party. Few alienable or property rights exist, as the state. i.e. the pubic good and general welfare are legislatively and judicially deemed to have greater legal standing and priority over the rights of the individual. This system usually operates by a highly centralized bureaucracy administered by a single extremely powerful political party, using strong-armed police and military powers. Individual rights are sacrificed for the alleged good of the majority.
