    The situation is hypothetical; the fact that we have property rights to resolve future disputes is very much grounded in reality.

    If one is delusional with no firm grasp of reality, then maybe.

    No, McCarthy wasn't right. He did a lot more harm than good. Accusing others of being communist without any regard for factual evidence isn't really a good thing.

    That has very little to do with who owns the land - more like laws and individual preferences. If one people owns it, or if ten do, negotiations can still occur, they can still sell it. the government can still force them to move, communities can still choose what to do democratically, and so on.

    Here's a question for you: how are private and group property different in this case?
