Sticky Stratification

In this clip from the Daily Show, Samantha Bee hits on an interesting, even if unintentional, nugget: a group that has rallied around egalitarian ideals is not immune to our human, social tendency toward stratification. Take a look:

This is a concept with which I have wrestled over the years. Is there an inevitable and innate human drive to stratify, the consequences of which are unavoidable, or is it merely a predisposition that we are capable of overcoming?

Oh, and the distinction between private and personal property is real, albeit equivocal.
