Owning the Earth
Who owns the land that we live on?
“the private property society” is “a bizarre mutation alien to most of humanity” and a “monstrous method of owning the earth” says Andro Linklater
Do I have a say over what happens on the land?
Because I have an idea…… everyone likes trees, and if we live in a city full of trees then maybe we will be happier?
a woodland within the city?
Be realistic, we live within a capitalist society and there are established systems in place. We cant just put trees anywhere.
Also someone owns the land and money is to be made… and the planning system is in place that serves the needs of the people.
There is always time for change.
