"The nation, that is to say the whole body of the German people, the community at large, is the sole owner of the land, the raw materials that lie beneath the surface of the land, and the means of production in general, the right of exploiting these being assigned to individual Germans in "entail" according as they may be capable and worthy of it.
To make this demand intelligible we must briefly distinguish between private property and possession.
To have a thing as one's private property means that one can do what one likes with it can sell it, injure it, or destroy it at will. To have possession of a thing means usufruct, that one is entitled to use the thing, to exploit it, but subject to the will and supervision of another, the substantial owner, whose private property it is.
The proprietor of the entire German national economy will henceforward be no one other than the communityat large, the whole nation. But the nation, or its organizational form, the State, will not run this economy itself. It will hand the national economy over, fragmented and in entail, for exploitation by German individuals or German groups." - Germany Tomorrow by Otto Strasser p. 146
