"I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it." --Benjamin Franklin 1776
IMO the best way is to minimize regulations, requirements, and taxes.
Not eliminate, for there are good reasons for some regulations and requirements.
But the less regulations and requirements someone needs to meet, the faster they can get stuff done.
Sometimes I think we're alone. Sometimes I think we're not. In either case, the thought is staggering. ~ R. Buckminster Fuller
The same thing cannot be done with land. Land was always here and it is commonly owned by everyone. No one individual has a right to land just because they say they do.
I am not against the possession and homesteading of land, however it is important that we establish it is not a legitimate form of property.
"Men did not make the earth ... it is the value of the improvement only, and not the earth itself, that is individual property... Every proprietor owes to the community a ground rent for the land which he holds." -- Thomas Paine, Agrarian Justice
I'm aware of how America approaches "property", however I simply disagree with it. I don't think land can be legitimately owned in the sense that you can own an apple or a computer. I am not against possession or homesteading of land. People would still own houses, farm/maintain land, and enjoy a little piece of the world. However claiming that land is "property" has some very disastrous environmental and social consequences. It's important that we understand and recognize that the Earth is owned by everyone.However, we Americans pretty much go with the English common law concept when it comes to the land. In English common law, real property or real estate or any immovable property that is legally defined along with improvements to it such as buildings, machinery, wells, dams, ponds, mines, canals, roads, etc. are indeed a person's private property when legally purchased or acquired. Real property and personal property are the two main subunits of property in English Common Law
