What Does the Israeli Constitution Have in Common with The Communist Manifesto?

The Israeli Constitution stipulates that “land shall not be held in exclusive private ownership” but instead is to serve the “public trust.”

The Communist Manifesto’s FIRST plank in its ten-plank platform calls for “the abolition of property in land” so that it is used only for “public purposes.”

Public trust, public purposes, same thing.
