The Big Granfalloon, society

"There is no existing entity called 'society';
there are only interacting individuals. To say
that 'society' should own land or any other
property in common, then, must mean that a group
of oligarchs -- in practice, government
bureaucrats -- should own the property, and at
the expense of expropriating the creator or the
homesteader who had originally brought this
product into existence."

--Murray Rothbard, The Libertarian Manifesto
