Americans are already Serfs without basic ownership

"You have no doubt heard the WEF’s slogan about our future – the one (not far from now) in which we will “own nothing and be happy.”

We’ve been living in that future for at least 100 years. The future envisioned by the WEF is thus merely an elaboration of the past – and present.

Do you disagree?

Well, let’s see!

Does anyone in this country own the home they live in – the land on which it sits? Certainly, many regard themselves as “homeowners” and “landowners.” But is this accurate? It may well be that they have “paid off” their house – and land – by which is meant they have paid the seller or the bank the purchase price of the property.

But who actually owns the property?

The question can be answered be reframing it.

Is the home-and-land-owner obliged to pay money in perpetuity in order to continue living on the property even after he has “paid it off”? The answer is one well-known to everyone who believes he is the “owner” of a home or land in this country. In fact, he is a kind of renter – in the manner of a Medieval serf – who is permitted to occupy the home/land so long as he continues to make payments to its actual owner, the lord. Or – in our case – the government – which (just like the lord, in Medieval times) has the legal power to seize the home/land for non-payment."

    Yes indeed. I've echoed these sentiments many times in the past in the Gulch and elsewhere. In spite of paying off my mortgage a long time ago I will never be able to stop paying the "royal rent" to Lord Government and remain living in my home. My ancestor, who fought in the Rev War, was paid in land and the freedom he fought for included no property taxes and no income taxes. He could build what he wanted on his land without having to ask permission, plant whatever crops he wanted, bargained for whatever price he wanted for those crops, and kept what he earned. He was perhaps the closest example of a free people the history of the world ever saw. Then the busy body control freaks started to take control...

    Now I don't really own my home and, regarding the fruits of my labor, there are two questions being wrestled over: 1) How much of MY paycheck is MY fair share and, 2) How much of MY paycheck is someone else's fair share?

    Exactly. Don't pay your taxes and see what happens. Local, state and federal governments are all powerful. Historically governments have always relied on taxing production, not consumption. Taxes are a necessary evil. Allowing true ownership and taxing consumption will create an economy that is off the charts. But then CONgress will lose control. And that is what it is all about.

    Part of the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 is a violation of man's right to property. If you own a store, you have the right to say who may come into it and who may not. You may be a bigoted racist, but on your own land, you have the right to say who may come on to it or not. (Though racism is immoral, the way to handls such a situation is through boycotts,and similar action.)

    Oh my dear FFA, you are only one of so many people I know here in Texas that have awakened and realized they will never stop paying property taxes! I predict a movement in the not too distant future where this will become the #1 issue. nb
