Who owns the land? Nowadays you have to BUY land. As I live in England, I can say you buy land here from the council, or another person who bought it
from the council. You can't just walk into the middle of a wood and stop in one place and say "This is my land." I mean you can, but no one would
recognize you as the true owner. And if you built a house on that land they would come and knock it down. Because it's their land. My question is,
who gave it to them? And who recognized it when they said it's theirs? Let's take America for an example. The land used to belong to the Indians.
Then you have all these white men coming from Europe, settling down in places, cultivating some land, building a farm around and houses. Yeah that's
fine, why not. But at one point that man says: "This is my land." Does that make is his land? If I wanted to play there could I not? If he said
it's his land, I say, "Who gave it to you?" Obviously the answer is "I was here first". Fair enough, there's plenty more land around, I'll just
go somewhere else. Not that I (or anyone) recognize that land as his, but since I don't want to fight, I leave and find myself another piece of land.
But again, at one point, a group of people say: "All the land is ours." Who were they? Who gave them the land? And most importantly: who recognized
it as theirs? Why is it that I can't settle today on an apparently free piece of land? How did it start? And if it's whoever was here first, Indians
can say they were here first, and they're right! So why is not all the land theirs? Same goes for Australia. White man takes land from aboriginal,
nowadays you have the debates, white man tries to LEASE land back to original owner. WTF? For story please read www.crikey.co...-little-secret...
I know one thing. Even IF the government truly and justly owned ALL land (which they don't, unless everyone says they do, but why would we? Hang on,
we do! [??]), even then, if you need if to build a house on, you should get it free. A certain amount for everyone. Let's take me for exapmle. I got
married to a Ukrainian woman. Every couple that get married get land. Free. And we did. 16m by 110m. Behind the last houses in a street. How it works
is, her parents are using it to grow stuff for now. When we move there, if we build a house on it, electricity and other services will be extended for
a few metres so we get access. This is how it should be. Council tax does not exist. Of cource there is street lighting and the bins get taken away.
This is what tax is paid for. What I don't understand is where tax in the UK goes. So I have to pay stupid council tax here. Again, WTF? I could go
on and on and on. But the question is, who owns the land, what gave them the right to say it's theirs, and who is it recognized by? Not me for sure.
