Aristotle on Social Goods - Dictionary of Arguments

Höffe I 64
Social goods/Aristoteles/Höffe: Aristotle proposes a "mixed property system", by which he rejects both a complete nationalisation of land and a purely private ownership of property. For the public tasks, which today are financed by taxes, at that time for the ritual acts and the common meals, there should be a common property (state land), the "rest" should become private property.
Each citizen is given two parcels of land, one towards the national border and one in the interior of the country, both for reasons of justice and to achieve unanimity against hostile neighbours.
In the social tasks of common property there are approaches to the welfare state, but the scope of this should not be overestimated. Aristotle, for example, rejects attendance fees, although they allow all citizens to participate in the People's Assembly.
