If everyone owns everything, noone cares about anything. If land is not owned by anybody, although legal formalism may call it public property, it is utilized without any regard to the disadvantages resulting. Those who are in a position to appropriate to themselves the returns-lumber and game of the forests, fish of the water areas, and mineral deposits of the subsoil—do not bother about the later effects of their mode of exploitation. For them the erosion of the soil, the depletion of the exhaustible resources and other impairments of the future utilization are external costs not entering into their calculation of input and output. They cut down the trees without any regard for fresh shoots or reforestation. In hunting and fishing, they do not shrink from methods preventing the repopulation of the hunting and fishing grounds. In the early days of human civilization, when soil of a quality not inferior to that of the utilized pieces was still abundant, people did not find any fault with such predatory methods. When their effects appeared in a decrease in the net returns, the ploughman abandoned his farm and moved to another place. It was only when a country was more densely settled and unoccupied first-class land was no longer available for appropriation, that people began to consider such predatory methods wasteful. At that time they consolidated the institution of private property in land. They started with arable land and then, step by step, included pastures, forests, and fisheries.

Banks, central banks, and similar centralized institutions are not inherent to capitalism. In fact, central banks that centrally manage the cost of capital run counter to the principles of capitalism, where prices are determined by the forces of supply and demand. Confused soul you are.

Storing consumer goods for challenging times is essentially a form of saving, while increasing productivity entails becoming more efficient in your actions. Having more nuts for difficult times doesn't make you more efficient at amassing even more nuts. You are confused. The only element missing from my previous explanation of the essence of capitalism is the concept of private ownership of the means of production. However, I forgot that it’s useless to discuss you. Just a waste of time. You insult people just for having different opinion. I wish you well in your commitment to communism. Good night
