Andreasson

If property can emancipate and empower, it tends to do so very selectively and unevenly. The net effect of expanding forms of property and expanding enforcement of property rights, as opposed to what property rights can theoretically (and in some cases actually do) produce, is that people become dispossessed and without access to various things enabling their subsistence (Andreasson, 2006: 18).
