La 'uberización' expulsa al agricultor para enriquecer a la gran empresa

Nunca es mal momento para recordar el capítulo 3 de Las Uvas de la Ira:
The tenant pondered. "Funny thing how it is. If a man owns a little property, that
property is him, it's part of him, and it's like him. If he owns property only so he can walk
on it and handle it and be sad when it isn't doing well, and feel fine when the rain falls
on it, that property is him, and some way he's bigger because he owns it. Even if he isn't
successful he’s big with his property. That is so.”

And the tenant pondered more. “But let a man get property he doesn’t see, or can’t take
time to get his fingers in, or can’t be there to walk on it—why, then the property is the
man. He can't do what he wants, he can't think what he wants. The property is the man,
stronger than he is. And he is small, not big. Only his possessions are big—and he's the
servant of his property. That is so, too."
