Discussion

"I’ve discussed extensively about Block’s Corollary, regarding the absurd consequences of the concept of property. Block’s Corollary is basically the position that the right of property logically implies the right to a degree of control over the people who are on that property. This is generally admitted in many cases, but we’ve merely taken the argument to its logical conclusion, as Block does, and proposed that under the capitalist property scheme rape is not necessarily a crime as long as it’s done under contract (as Block says, it is in fact purely voluntary)."
