When I was in my early twenties, and that is ages ago,
I would say to myself, ‘If I had only been born long ago when
land was free I wouldn’t have to pay so much.’
I was trying to save for a down payment on a house,
and things seemed so expensive.
I knew rich acquaintances in college and their parents
gave them a down payment.
It all seemed so unfair.
Fact is, if I lived in the time of the settlers when land was free,
I would have had to hewn down the trees while I fought off bears.
I would have had to scratch the earth in hope for a crop.
There was not a doctor if I got sick.
There was no convenient store to grab a beer.
It is all about the differential of having and not having.
Children need to feel history and not just read about it.
Unfortunately, most don’t even read about it.
They just want with.
The Irony is that you spend much of your life acquiring and
ultimately the house, now that the kids are grown, is a burden
you can't wait to get rid of.
What is the point?
The point is... freedom gives you the ability to make stuff.
Socialism, the equalizer, gives the cuckoo bird the right
to a house they refuse to build for themselves.
