In permaculture, we speak of abundance. We take the worst piece of land, invest sweat and time and treasure into that land, and build a system where it goes beyond productive to a point where we are able to give away a surplus beyond what we are able to consume ourselves. There is not underlying assumption of limited good. The sky is the limit. There are not just 3 boxes. There are an unlimited number of potential boxes, you just have to do the hard work to build them.

To rephrase my bother's comment (that I quoted above): when someone argues, "We just want a slice of the pie", he would respond, "You mean you want a slice of my pie? Bake your own damn pie." I will help you, give you assistance, coaching, and support while you get your system up and running, but don't expect to eat from my fruit trees for the rest of your life. Plant your own trees. Invest in your own chickens. Bake your own pie. Build your own damn box.

There are places where condo towers with balconies overlook professional ballparks and people routinely hold viewing parties on their own balconies; nobody considers that a crime because it isn't. It's just a leakage in the business model, not worth plugging because there's no practical way at reasonable expense.
