strange threadfellows

Here's an incongruous congruency; #ows and the sovereign citizen movement.  Both invite an erosion to the rule of law, #ows by advocating theft/occupation of bank repos, SC by tax protest and impersonation of officers.  Poverty and disenfranchisement are the prime movers of both groups, and here's a suggestion- since social problems have social solutions, why not make a legal assault on the fiction of perpetual property?  A law that reads something like, "if the bank can't sell the repo'd house in 3 months, it reverts to the defaulting buyer or is redistributed in some other way, for the common weal".  Nonflowing dollars should definitely have finite shelf life.
