    Do you know of any large group of people that exist together without an imposed system?

    Marx would argue that applying his theory of value, the students would collaborate to answer the questions, as opposed to capitalists competing with each other in an effort to create a social order.

    Digging a little deeper, where did the investment for the classroom and teacher come from? Was the intent for the students to learn; or compete for grades?

    In this case, you have two imaginary systems that on the surface appear to be diametrically opposing. Yet, the underlying societies have to end up in the same place to be sustainable.

    What I find funny is you believe our system of Federalism, where the state and federal government impose their will, does less harm.

    You make a good point here. Every system includes some type of rule of law that is in some way imposed.

    It’s when you use the power of government to take from one person to give it to another that it becomes tyranny.

    Collectivists are never satisfied when people have the freedom to choose their own path in life. It's a shame that Collectivists don't recognize that people who embrace freedom have no qualms with Collectivists choosing to live in a manner which they choose as long as they don't force/impose their choices upon everyone else.

    And this is it right here. I’ve come to love freedom and consider it precious, yet it’s troubling to see how many take it for granted.

    There’s an old saying:
    “You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.”
