Actually, they don't emphasize process, they emphasize who does it, and what is done. Objectivism prefers the government not to handle most anything, but would never advocate people losing their property over a minor tax bill - that is theft, a very big no-no in Objectivism.

Yea, that's what process usually entails. I don't see outcome in that list.

Well, property is sacred in Objectivism and "stealing" is a deadly sin. I'll leave it up to you to decide whether taking someone's home over a tiny unpaid tax bill would be considered stealing. (Hint: it is.)


…and thus the internal contradictions inherent in Objectivism are laid bare.
