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.
@yogthos That seems more like centralization of ownership rather than elimination. You rent your phone. The carrier, OEM, and Apple or Google co-own it.
Why "buy" a new tractor if I don't reply own it and am also responsible for it's care? If I rent an apartment but I don't service the appliances. That's supposed to be the trade off equity for responsibility.
