Private property

In the spirit of the SF/F post, I should point out that the concept of “private property” is a middle class thing as well. In the natural human state, there is a pie of existing resources, which the Great Men distribute to the proles. This is the guiding spirit of most economic decisions today- to return to this base state through socialism, egalitarianism, et al. In opposition to this is the guiding spirit of capitalism, which says that we should try to increase the size of the pie, but this requires a general threshold of imagination in a large enough segment of the population.
