That was exactly how it used to be when the European settlers arrived. What happened was some people didn't work, people went hungry and harvested crop before it was ripe, people didn't share, etc. and at the end of the season there wasn't enough food for everyone.
So they decided everyone would have their own piece of land to do whatever they want and people were responsible for themself. Extra food could be traded and it worked better.
But then people realized land was a limiting resource, so people wanted more land. So people began buying land, and the. everyone didnt have land and the system got worse. Blacks were used as slaves to work their land since blacks had no land for themselves.
Even in Native American culture land has been an issue. Animals tend to move, migrate, and what not so what happens when the herd is in enemy territory or there's no animals around? Do you steal, kill the other tribes? Starve? What happens when winter comes? Do you stay put or find a new spot? The native Americans were no strangers to war.

Natives did that quite alright. Sounds to me like the 'European culture' everyone like you loves was the issue.

Most native tribes outside of the more established 'territorial' ones like the Pueblo or Haudenasaunee were migratory themselves, so that would be a moot point, no? There's no 'enemy territory', there's only Turtle Island.

Do you stay put or find a new spot?

Refer to above.

I have no idea what you're trying to say. How were the settlers communist? They were marauding invaders and feudal lords.

Judging by your post history, your grasp of basic political theory is appaling, so on second thought don't bother answering.
