Privacy is of vital importance to the well being of any human being, private property is of no importance at all. In fact since we are all stewards of what we purportedly own, we have generated the ridiculous farce of handing down private property through families. An effective way of ensuring a few people have privacy and many do not.
Stewardship is a very important idea to imbibe. We all die therefore in any meaningful way none of us own anything. We have certain control while we live, then we pass on what we had and what we have made of it. It is that simple, but it isn’t. Vanity means we have to pass it on to our own small genetic pool and not the community in which and through which we create everything we have. Effectively this means the system enables one group of people the ability to deprive others of whatever it is they have living control over.
Now if we taught altruism and gentleness, progressive engagement and commonality this would not matter. But we don’t. We breed selfishness and preach selflessness. The wrong way round.
