No Theft

“Here the road forked. They found that they must turn either to the right or to the left,—follow either the path of Authority or the path of Liberty. Marx went one way; Warren and Proudhon the other. Thus were born State Socialism and Anarchism” — socialism sans-State. Benjamin Tucker
For capitalism as we know it to come about, it was essential first of all for labor to be separated from property…”primitive accumulation”…Ever since the birth of the first states six thousand years ago, political coercion has allowed one ruling class or another to live off other people’s labor…The current system of transnational state capitalism, without rival since the collapse of the soviet bureaucratic class system, is a direct outgrowth of the seizure of power “four hundred years” ago. Orwell had it backwards. The past is a “boot smashing a human face.” Whether the future is more of the same depends on what we do now.” Kevin Carson

Just what entails theft may vary from one anarchism to the next, but most all are united that workers receive the full product of their labor, and cost is the limit of price (for reproducible goods anyway). Open books.
