On what grounds does Mill say we should decide between the existing system of private property, and the system of communism? What did Mill mean when he said, “The principle of private property has never yet had a fair trial in any country?” Why did Mill celebrate (pp. 309-10) that “the feudal family, the last historical form of patriarchal life, has long perished, and the unit of society is not now the family or clan, composed of all the reputed descendants of a common ancestor, but the individual”? Mill seems to think that the worst kind of tyranny is “tyranny of the majority.” How does his fear of tyranny of the majority influence his thoughts about what government should or should not do? What virtues does Mill celebrate, and try to encourage?
