When people stop fighting for the possession of private property, they will fight for the usufruct in collective property.

  1. The original Spanish is:

    Cuando se deje de luchar por la posesión de la propiedad privada se luchará por el usufructo de la propiedad colectiva.

  2. A "usufruct," for those unfamiliar with the term, is a civil (Roman) law right to use and derive profit from a piece of property belonging to another, provided the property itself remains undiminished and uninjured in any way. It is similar to a beneficiary's common law right to the income from a trust.
