Owning land
    #11410351 - 11/08/09 12:15 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I think "owning" land is really weird. Like when we came and kicked the natives off of the land and claimed it. Who the fuck were they to claim land. You can't own part of the earth. People spend tons of money on land but nobody made it, it was already there. Someone just claimed it and then can sell it?! It's just a dumb human system.

With power comes ownership of land.  If I have a gun and can make you leave a specific area then that area becomes mine.

I agree that sharing the land is a nobler ideal but greed and egoism are significant forces in the world in which we live.

owning your computer is an extension of owning land, same with your bike, your car and everything else. We all take part in the effects of this culture on the world.

Oh boy! It'll be exciting in the 22nd Century to see which common resources we've relegated to property!

While you guys were quibbling over land, I took the liberty of privatizing the sun.

What else do you find weird? The fact that people grow crops in organized ways, and that they live in societies? Maybe even art is weird, I mean, who the fuck are we to make art? And what about kids? I mean, how weird is that? Who are we to decide to keep making people? I even think we shouldn't eat anything, be it fruit, veggie, or animal. Oh wait, but do we have the right to starve ourselves to death? :tinfoil:

And never known your face
All this time I've missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs

Isn't it funny how the Creator has absolutely no power when the land disputes go to the court room?

You may buy outerspace, but good luck enforcing it. That's the key. Weapons and goons.

Edit: and as I read in your sun purchase thread, Icelander also pointed out the need of an army...

How about getting together with some other people and working out a plan to gain control of the sun within a few hundred years?

I already planted a flag on the sun(you can't see it cuz it burned up, but it still counts).  So I don't know what planning you think I need to do.

if you want to go about owning other planets i suggest making friends with the animals and insects first, which i have already started and have talked to the first numbers of the human race and we call space, stars and all else, haha

Also, how do you go about owning something when you can't contact the owner?

Just human? Do you know one of the main reason wolves howl is to ward other packs away from THEIR TURF?

Many animals are fiercely territorial and use fang and claw instead of guns.

are you kidding me? humans are the only territorial creatures on the planet. :rolleyes: Are you suggesting that a significant portion of the animal kingdom claim rights to certain areas of land?
