The Ultimate Fairytale : A short history of Greece, Rome, Israel, England, France, and Germany.

There are two land struggles in South Africa. The first is about land which was supposedly taken unfairly. The land claims court has been settling these disputes with our tax money for the last quarter century.

The second land struggle is about land which is not being made use of, except insomuch as that property accrues interest every year.

This land can be fenced off, and prevent us from taking the shortest route from A to B.

Not to do all the thinking, taking a longer route generally involves greater expense.

Spelling things out, were one to have investments in businesses which make money out of travel, one might think of buying property and letting it stand unused.

Double or nothing: the best way for a shop owner to make a monopoly in a town is to buy all the land upon which anyone else might set up a competing shop.

I do not believe in prescribing importance to things which I do believe aught to be treated equally.

I do believe that land is one of the things which necessitate a government.

And I'm just a bloody capitalist demanding that land be expropriated without fair compensation!
