Why Marx Was Against Individual Rights-David Gordon

Karl Marx agreed with Rothbard that individual rights lead to inequality. For Marx, though, this was an argument against rights.

People are unequal in abilities and circumstances, and because of this, attempts to make them equal by force will inevitably violate their rights to live in freedom. If people have rights, unequal outcomes will result and trying to impose equality will violate their rights. It is as simple as that.

Marx had a keen eye for nonsense, except when he himself was writing it.”
