John Stuart Mill in is book Principles of political economy denounces the way he observes the fruits of labour is distributed now and insists that current state of affairs is not the  implementation of the principles of private ownership and it is in fact the reverse of it, because  the largest portions go those who never work at all, If it was he would choose communism!:

if the institution of private property necessarily carried with it as a consequence, that the produce of labour should be apportioned as we now see it, almost in an inverse ratio to the labour — the largest portions to those who have never worked at all, the next largest to those whose work is almost nominal, and so in a descending scale, the remuneration dwindling as the work grows harder and more disagreeable, until the most fatiguing and exhausting bodily labour cannot count with certainty on being able to earn even the necessaries of life; if this or Communism were the alternative, all the difficulties, great or small, of Communism would be but as dust in the balance. But to make the comparison applicable, we must compare Communism at its best, with the regime of individual property, not as it is, but as it might be made. The principle of private property has never yet had a fair trial in any country; (Mill, 2004,p. 259-260)
