...I've always been of the mind that you should never be able  to
claim more than you or your extended family can use _personally_...

Same goes for productive land -- claims to more land than you can
personally plow/weed/water/etc. should be seen for what it is -- pure
avarice.

JimJ,
are you referring here to modern industrial societies in part?  I
would guess so for your "should" statement, and this normative
statement you would apply to future revolutionary society as well.

But you also refer to pre-industrial, pre-capitalist societies.  In
that situation, do you think that people had such "avarice"?  If so,
why would they? or why not? in your view.
