Boosts appreciated.

@dredmorbius Enclosure. The world would be completely different in every way if we still had a concept of communal property. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enclosur

@mibzman @dredmorbius The crazy thing about enclosure is that its still happening all the time, particularly in the digital space, but even outside of it.

@mibzman There's a great book which goes into some of the history of the rise of enclosure (and other land-related things) in England:
