Were The OWS Robberies A Good Model of Efficiency For The Redistribution of Wealth/Assets Without Government Intervention?
“Occupy Wall Street protesters said yesterday that packs of brazen crooks within their ranks have been robbing their fellow demonstrators blind, making off with pricey cameras, phones and laptops—and even a hefty bundle of donated cash and food.“__“Stealing is our biggest problem at the moment,” said Nan Terrie, 18, a kitchen and legal-team volunteer from Fort Lauderdale.Source
The problem with this article is that it claims thievery, but this isn’t theft. It’s redistribution of wealth/assets. It’s just being done without government intervention. In my mind this is the model of efficiency. I don’t see what all the fuss is about.
The OWS are protesting for the exact same process, except that they want it applied to the rich only, and want it done through government intervention.
