Finland has released a commemorative coin marking the events of the “Winter War” in which outnumbered and outgunned Finns slaughtered Soviet invaders.
On the back of this coin, a scene appears of a Finnish tribesman executing several Communists. We can tell this is an execution because the rifle is leveled at them as if about to be immediately used. This calls to mind the statement by Hans-Hermann Hoppe from his book Democracy: The God That Failed (2001):
In a covenant…among proprietor and community tenants for the purpose of protecting their private property, no such thing as a right to free (unlimited) speech exists, not even to unlimited speech on oneâ€™s own tenant-property. One may say innumerable things and promote almost any idea under the sun, but naturally no one is permitted to advocate ideas contrary to the very covenant of preserving and protecting private property, such as democracy and communism. There can be no tolerance toward democrats and communists in a libertarian social order. They will have to be physically separated and removed from society.
Physical removal of Communists is necessary for people to own property, including themselves, and all egalitarian thinking is on the Leftist spectrum and therefore properly seen as varieties of Communism. With its approval, Finland again signals the right path for dealing with this problem.
