The first sentence is correct. The second one is often not correct, and the third one is completely wrong.
For someone who makes so many claims about private property, you seem to know little about property laws in the common law system.
The only common I care about is the one next to my house. I am part of the local community so I would have a say on what uses that land is put to same as the local farmers. Personally I would not object to a temporary camp providing the campers cleaned up after themselves. The local farmers might be more demanding because they keep sheep and cows on the common. I wouldn't even worry about a caravan being sited there because the land is extremely hilly and not suitable at all for caravans due to the lack flat gradients.
So is that a yes or a no?
The reality is everyone wants to live on private property nobody (including yourself and @Truth To Power) wants to live on common land because:
1. You can't build there without making it private land.
What if we lived in a society where this concept of private property in land was radically different or did not exist?
2. People like to live in houses more than they like living out in the open.
This is not relevant.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
