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.

I don't think private property is being erased. It's being further concentrated in the hands of the elite. Capitalism can only work with government intervention to ensure an equitable distribution of wealth.

@AppleStrudelMan well yeah erased from the perspective of the individuals, and agree completely
