I’d be well into that if it didn’t mention bikes

I’d still believe property should be a thing and that people have the right to own objects. What now.

I guess there’s a difference between believing a law is wrong and believing the concept of law is wrong?

can probably block it out with a marker pen (or change it to say fuck bikes)

Yes but you’ve also said that property shouldn’t exist, in this very thread. So the point stands.

Is that a floor or a wall?

the concept of private property rights. Obviously people should be able to have a home and live in it free from fear of burglary etc.

I don’t know (it’s not my photo, I stole it)

how do we prevent an individual from accumulating all of the resources without the concept of law or property or those who are incentivised to enforce society’s norms?

Yeah that’s so obvious based off of what you were saying before. What about shops run by one person? By two people? If it’s a successful shop or a struggling one?

I’m just taking a pretty standard marxist position here, this isn’t my personal manifesto or anything.

It’s not even that the concept of law is called into question, just that it’s not fit for purpose always and should be recognised in those instances.

don’t think i’ve ever owned a single pine nut, stolen or otherwise

et tu niki?

is there an argument for changing a law within a current legal framework?

Privilege doesn’t just extend to how much money you have at the end of the month. You’re an (?upper?) middle class white male for whom, as songs_about_ducking says, the consequences of being caught are a lot lower than many other people, especially those who have to shoplift through necessity. Shoplifting when you don’t need to drives up security and theft-prevention measures which makes it more likely that those who do need to steal to survive will be caught, and makes the sanctions more severe.

If you’re going to try to make the ‘passing on’ argument, try not to use facetious examples like calling helplines, not being speedy through the tills and buying loss leaders (seriously, they’re utter trash arguments).

If your point is so much more complex and nuanced, why have you been so utterly incapable of making it in this thread so far? It seems to be easier to claim that you were trolling and that you shit yourself on purpose rather than have to actually progress beyond trite sloganeering?

I stole some sweets when I was 10. I felt terrible and guilty for ages.

Not in my personal manifesto it’s not
