17. The Right to Your Own Property. Everyone has the right to own things or share them. Nobody should take our property from us without a good reason.

Remember that when the Declaration of Human Rights was written, World War II had just ended.  Many people had their property confiscated, from homes and companies down to the clothes and toys of children.  Stripping a person of their possessions is a way to dehumanize a population, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights forbids it.
