Real Estate law is tricky. I only did 30 hrs out of a 40 hr course but learned a lot.
Theoretically, property rights extends to the center of the Earth and up to the sky into outer space.
But it doesn’t – and it has almost NOTHING to do with communism or the EPA.
Wherever you might have been getting these ideas from, or thinking them through yourself, they’re wrong. I’d want someone to tell me and I’m glad when they do.
Your property rights are a little bubble, the center of a VERY large column, and it is within this bubble most humans operate.
I cant fly above 30 feet of my home. FAA owns that. Is that communism? No.
Can I transmit anything I want on radio waves? No.
Can I mine in my backyard? Probably not.
Can my land be taken away for lots of reasons I don’t know about or haven’t been invented yet? Yes.
What do I get in return? Lots of stuff I never have to think twice about.
I haven’t, but I grew up hearing about it and always had a “Give a hoot, don’t pollute” mindset and watched all the name changes of greenhouse gases / global warming / climate change, laughed at the occasional mistakes but never had any doubt that we are stewards of this planet.=
oh I can’t watch that stuff. But locally we had the Koreshian society. Sort of like Shakers in sexuality (none) but believed in a hollow earth idea. Late 19th/early 20th century. Last follower died in the 80s I think. Land is now a museum in Bonita Springs FL. State Park… for Hollow Earth.
You’re a bucketload of fun. I think there’s people – food scientists both academic and commercial – who don’t want that either and have the tools and resources to work at preventing it and at mitigating it should it happen.
Not impossible for disaster of course. But after growing up with “Day After” nuclear survival TV movie as a kid, little phases me.
When I had to draw trees in art, I just drew a nuclear bomb explosion and added a squirrel hole. I can’t sketch but that was my best ability.
[actually school shooting drawings replaced nazi for edgy kid art this past year. I think before that it was that mysterious S symbol. I don’t know why I know these things]
Read this as a kid, *and* my grandmother was a fan of Edgar Cayce who is the “American prophet” that came up with the idea of technological atlantis. He also predicted global warming back in the 40s.
ooh did he? Or is it Edgar Cayce’s interpretation of Atlantis that we learned?
I put Cayce aside as a kid, along with Ancient Astronauts and Nostrodaumus stuff in the early 80s.
When X-Files came out in the early 90s, I was like, “THIS STUFF AGAIN?” and wouldn’t watch the show until it was almost cancelled. Then I liked it.
When it first came out it was “too familiar” to me to watch.
I look at everything for patterns but I don’t trust what I see. It’s subjectively real and I can correlate but I go forward cautiously. Too many dragons along the way, and not the nice ones.
I’m a nerd. I go boldly forward but I also watch where I put my feet too.
3rd grade I hated it. Lied to myself with “sticks and stones” ’til 4th grade I was immune to namecalling.
I _am_ a Boss, in several ways, but I don’t like it. Mantle of responsibility isn’t for the foolish.
I guide but I delegate. I allow autonomy in such a way that maximizes my disappearance. Boss? What boss? Who is Ken? That’s my way.
I like my ego strokes too. But a few times I got addicted to it and it wasn’t good for anybody. So I learned timing.
