Capitalism is quietly erasing the idea of private property. All products are effectively becoming rentals, and the companies can revoke your right to use them whenever they feel like it. It's becoming increasingly difficult to actually own anything. Media is streamed, and devices are locked from the users.

It's hilarious how all the things people were afraid of happening under communism are actually happening under capitalism.

@frickhaditcoming @yogthos I know when I hear private property, I think personal property; this is why I was a bit wary of communism for the longest time. I thought I wouldn't be allowed to own any of my own stuff. (:

So thanks for pointing this out!

@frickhaditcoming @yogthos ...huh. So I /wouldn't/ be allowed to own stuff?

(Unless you're making a joke? I have no idea how communism works, and honestly can't tell.)

@IceWolf @yogthos oh sorry "im coming for that toothbrush also whitey" is a common meme about the subject. No one is actually going to communalize your toothbrush

@frickhaditcoming @yogthos Ohhh, okay! Thanks. Yeah, I'm completely oblivious to a lot of memes. (:
