    But the idealist in me wants to dispute the conclusion.

    If we, as consumers and citizens, can act to demand better control the profit motive by demanding better services,  more responsive and less corrupt governments and a better quality of life--globally, not just locally--we can at least ameliorate this bleak prognosis.

    I believe Progressives achieved at least some of this--in effective legislation for better housing, health care, public education, child labor, public health, public spaces, etc.--during the late 19th and 20th centuries.

    Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.
