: Arent there a lot of crimes that have nothing to do with property or property relations?

The idea of natural property. You own your own body and mind. direct attacks against your person are crimes against your body/mind. There are some (eg supporters of conscription, national service in other areas) who oppose this idea, and lay claim to your person.

Ofcourse a person who owns his body but has no means to support it is impotent. The means are things like the tools to farm, build, produce and the right to use them. Not just in some agrarian sense, but also in working at some job.

A person whose ownership (right to use property) of any other item (or choice to work) is at the behest of either the state or a popular vote is also made impotent in the same way.

Hence my support of private property.
