    Original message People are poor because they have no land.


    And this is the dangerous idea that they don’t want you to learn.
    It is dangerous because the true wealth of a nation is in the land and it’s resources, and in the labor that produces our abundance. And should the people learn that, they might desire some of the real estate for themselves.
    Just look at how the vast majority of people live now….a big house on a small lot with grass that we cut and kick to the curb….if one day the grocery store had nothing to sell we would all starve….so our security is non existents and we are totally dependent on a job and the corporate system for our life….there really is no difference between our system now and the feudalism of the past. We live at the pleasure of the owners.

    But it has not always been so….This country once had most of the people living on farms, and on these farms they had the means to produce all that they needed to survive any financial crisis. A milk cow, some chickens, a pig or two, and an acre of good land and your family will eat even if they have to wear patches on their pants and carry their lunch to school.
    And this is how most people got through the last great depression….in fact it feed many that did not have land….the country side was crawling with unemployed men who would knock on the door of a farm house and ask the lady of the house if they could work for food….and she always had some kind of chore and would feed him and sometimes give him a piece of bread to take with him.
    The lady of the house would probably sell eggs and butter to trade for flower and so the one thing they had that was valuable is food….and they owned it themselves.
    And that is the real wealth that we lost the ability to be free and secure in your life has been lost when we gave up the land to industry.

    Back to the land young men and women….that is the answer.

    Yeah...this is why people are poor. These people are friggen rose colored glasses moronic!!! Just incredible...
    May the FORCE be with you!

    ". A milk cow, some chickens, a pig or two,"
    Nowadays, if people did that, they'd have those douches from PETA howling and protesting outside your driveway about how you're "Enslaving animals" or some crap like that.
    btw, zeemike, learn how to spell "Flour" next time you want to go into a similar rant.

    Zeemike:

    You are lamenting that people don't own any land.

    The US government owns roughly 30% of the land in America, 65% of the land west of Colorado.

    Quite the dilemma this creates for someone who posts at DU, don't you think? You can't be suggesting that the benevolent monolith sell off some of its land to private citizens, can you? :eek:
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    The distinguishing feature of Communism is not the abolition of property generally, but the abolition of bourgeois property. But modern bourgeois private property is the final and most complete expression of the system of producing and appropriating products, that is based on class antagonisms, on the exploitation of the many by the few.
    In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.

    So they don't like Marx anymore?

    And it is the LIBERALS who keep having the Government buy it up or otherwise make it off-limits to people!
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
