Occupy SF's ideology

The Occupy movement has not completely disappeared. The (left-wing) San Francisco Bay Guardian gathered an "uncomprehensive list of active groups from Occupy in San Francisco."  Here is their description of the one located on Market Street:
101 Market. This is the old camp of Occupy, “re-occupied” in February in response to a national call. At least 30 sleep there every night, and the camp is a veritable fortress of furniture and belongings. They’re [sic.] mere existence is a refusal to humor the concept of private property. General Assembly meetings occur at 101 Market Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm. [Emph. added]
So, they claim to oppose "the concept of private property."  Don't you suspect that if someone tried to walk off with their "furniture and belongings" that they would suddenly rediscover the meaning and value of "private property"?

Intellectual coherence is an under-appreciated concept.
