"You have noticed that everything an Indian does is in a circle, and that is because the Power of the World works in circles, and everything tries to be round. The Sky is round and I have heard the Earth is round, like a ball, and so are all the stars. The wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for their is the same religion as ours. Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they are. The life of a man is circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves."

From the totalitarian government's perspective, the cordoning off of people from the natural Earth must never subside. The Totalitarian Government statists, although totally inept as a steward of anything, cannot let people live with the Earth. Even though it is impossible to be everywhere, the government uses fencing, their costumed law enforcement, and phony authority to acquire more and more land.
This notion must have dominated the discussion in the Supreme Court yesterday. The Court was debating whether to allow the government to absorb the millions of acres claimed for the railroads by American Presidents in years past. When Congress passed the General Railroad Right of Way Act of 1875, they were too busy using their phony authority as they displaced entire cultures of Native Americans from the wide open west. They weren't thinking about the day when technological advances would render the rail lines obsolete. That day is here and although the railroad monopolies no longer need all the millions of acres of land, the government is reluctant to open these lands up for private purchase. Totalitarians are so greedy, they would rather fill the areas with concrete and asphalt and make a "bike path" than open the land up for purchase. In the mind of the statist, at least with constructing a bike path, no life would grow over their concrete and asphalt and they could continue enforcing all their totalitarian rules as they push people along from ghetto to ghetto. In the New World Order, that is a win-win.
Supreme Court Administrator John Roberts found it frustrating that the government wants to keep the land, even though "the government doesn't know what it owns." This absurd policy is just an extension of the rampant destruction of the West during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Despite the fact government can't effectively use or care for the territory, opening the land up would simultaneously increase the autonomy of private land owners and weaken the government's power. That is known as a bad move in the totalitarian playbook.
Why would America and her European masters go through all the trouble of eradicating significant parts of nature like the beaver and buffalo only to give the land back to the plebeians? Why would the U.S. Army send military escorts to survey the land and plot forts all over the West as outposts from which to attack and ethnically cleanse the American Indians? Why would the U.S. Government take the land in the first place if they were eventually just going to give it to "ordinary" people? Why would they ever relinquish the power of control?
"There is a serious tendency toward capitalism among the well-to-do peasants. This tendency will become rampant if we in the slightest way neglect political work among the peasants during the co-operative movement and for a very long period after."
Roberts and Scalia can act perplexed all they want as they give each other liberal handjobs behind the bench. Conquest and destruction is what this is all about. Ghettoizing and kettling people under a warfare/welfare police state is the aim. The fact is- America is a shit country with a very un-free economic landscape. Immigrants who come to America and remark about the virtues of America's freedom and the whining of the natives must not know any better. Most likely, they are just grateful for the opportunity to leave their "shittier" country. All the other "homegrown" Americans who still wave the flag most likely have an inconsequential job and keep their head firmly up their own ass, lest they see what is really going on.
The Earth has been almost completely exploited and destroyed. The rivers and lakes are unsafe to drink. The air is polluted with foreign agents. But hey, you might be able to ride your bike from New York to California without the danger of the highway. So be thankful.
