Property (i.e. "land") ownership is a myth, national boundaries are a myth: shared hallucinations if you will. I'm not saying they're not useful myths, or that they should necessarily be done away with. But they aren't real without the cooperation of all parties, and if too many people stop believing in these myths, and come up with other ideas they like better, things could be very difficult for the remaining believers.
