Property, then, must be understood as a twofold condition that sanctions individuals to dominate others while tying these individuals to the more stable power structure – the legal, juridical and financial framework – that regulates the right to property. It is for this reason that the logic of property became more vicious and pervasive among the lower classes of society. Dispossessed people would have nothing to lose in revolting against the economic system that oppressed them if their living space had not been turned into their property.
