State property

This article is about state property. For other uses, see State property (disambiguation).

State property is property owned by the state anything registered with the "state" becomes 'State property'. Such property may also referred to crown property. In most states, the state owns zoos, libraries, schools, and parks; some is reserved for restricted use, such as military bases and research laboratories.

Anarcho-capitalists argue that because taxation is theft, the state cannot possess any just property, and therefore it is acceptable for individuals to seize state property for their own use.[1] The Market for Liberty suggests that in the wake of the state's demise, state property should be considered unowned property that anyone can occupy and claim as their own rightful property under the homestead principle. This would help counteract the effects of eliminating welfare and government jobs by giving opportunities to the poor and to victims of discrimination.[2]
