Relate Trust to property

How do you relate to life?
Is your life your property to own and maintain, share, rent or what?
When the American Constitution gave us the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness the founding fathers also gave us property ownership responsibilities.
Monarchies used the King as the Highest Lord of God's Land. The Magna Carta (1215) is the first notable attempt at nobles limiting The Kings' power to remove anyone from family estates at His whim.

Property ownership gave us the ability feel self-possessed.
The feelings of belonging start in families and extend to communities.
How we own up to our responsibilities develops personal style of sustainability.
The concept of dependable support builds trust.
The community spirit of equal individuality inspired love of our nation with religious freedom by simply stating, "In God we trust."

With property taxes and insurance concepts came the living trust.
This trust is a vehicle for accumulating values for posterity's sake.
Trust is a paradigm that needs much more invested interest.

Having read a lot about the idea or concept of enlightenment, these ideas seem to be what I am trying to avoid. I haven't read it often enough to really understand what you are saying. I am not exactly an intellectual, and analysis is not my favorite tool. I kind of rely a lot on my intuition and insights based on observation.
It is true we need the ego and our sense of individuality to survive in society and relate to other individuals. We cannot do without it. This is our birhtright as members of any particular society or of society in general. The ego is the result of our relationships, or relationships breeds the ego.
In order to discover or find enlightenment, we need to observe and examine the ego, if it has any value other than to survive physically, materially, and intellectually in our society. To become enlightened we need to lose our attachment to it, and to family, to tribe, and to nation. And this means a lot of insecurities and fears coming out into the open, and being experienced intensely. Learning to deal with these could be the first step and the only way towards becoming enlightened.
Just trying to gather my thoughts on these concepts.
I will try to meditate on your statements.

Trust is only an expectation you have of others.
