This CityLab piece explores the long history of the sharing economy, which careful students of the Christian scriptures will remember being mentioned in Acts, when believers were together and had everything in common.
Evidently, private property is a fairly new idea. From the CityLab piece:
…private ownership may have originated around 11,000 years ago, as humans started farming. Agriculture and private property likely evolved together, since farmers are generally loath to let others reap what they have sown. As some hunter-gatherers settled down in fishing villages and other areas where there was plenty of food to be found or grown, they started building private living spaces. Archeological evidence suggests that they slowly stopped storing food communally and started keeping it in their houses instead.
As I have downsized multiple times (only to upsize again, like clockwork) the idea of sharing things is incredibly appealing.
