All was once free and divided not.

This whole video is very interesting, but this one question at 38:30 really got to me.
Okay ATS members, why in sam hell do we have to pay to live on a planet we were born on.
Who in the F owns the water, the seas, the air, the sky, the dirt - it should belong to all of us - who came along and claimed, "this is mine".

Farming is hard. I've actually worked on a farm as a child.
However, with machines to replace human labor, things have gotten easier.
The problem is that people are too lazy.

It (the system or world we live in and abide by) made absolutely no sense to me then and still doesn't to this day.
In the favorite words of my grandma:
"I tell ya what, it sure is a crime to live anymore!"
