Una vez más, The Anti-Puritan (via OutsideIn [comentario]):

I think of capitalism as being a great alienating machine composed of dozens of social technologies with the tech consisting of turning countless social relationships into property.

For example:
Patents (property in ideas)
Trademarks (property in creativity)
Real estate (property in land/ houses)
Title (property in objects)
Contract (property in agreements)
Marriage (property in sex)
Constitutions/Tort (property in rights)
Slavery (obsolete property in humans)
Futures (property in hedging risk)
Stocks (property in corporations)
Votes (equal property in government)
Bonds (property in debt)
Vouchers (property in services)
Insurance (property in safety)
Money (property in other people’s work)

Capitalism is PROPERTY. Moreover, as more and more things are be defined as property capitalism expands is dominion into every aspect of life. Capitalism not only is property, it is the expansion of what constitutes property.
