Proudhon is most famous for his hypothesis that Property is theft. He was a social individualist anarchist, see the economic-political map at http://www.anarchy.no/a_e_p_m.html. IIFOR’s precisation of Proudhon’s property vs possession concept is: Anarchies very briefly defined are systems with small rank and income differences, plus efficiency. Any ownership that is compatible with systems with small rank and income differences, plus efficiency, is possession. Possession may be individual or collective, private or public. Any ownership that results in large income differences is capitalist, economical plutarchy. Any ownership that results in large rank differences is statist.” This is property, i.e. not possession. The basic ideas of Proudhon are elaborated in the following quotes.
I once had a French teacher in high school who–legend has it–purchased about a hundred pairs of the same shoe in the same size after deciding it was the best pair of shoes he had ever worn, and calculating the wear rate combined with his life expectancy. For him, my guess is that picking out what pair of shoes he wanted to wear each day was not an issue, but for everything else, maybe he could have benefited from a service called Closet Assistant, which as the name suggests is a system to help you pick out what clothes to wear based on what you’ve got sitting in your closet.
