    Not cool, though I know you commies dont really like private property. Land was forcibly TAKEN by govt, that is NOT freedom, it was restriction.

    "Commies" have nothing to do with this... Lets try not to go full red scare...

    Didnt answer my question. Lets try again.
    " If one person owned 99% of the land in the country, does that make it "free"?"
    How about this: If one company owns 100% of a product and the government stops that practice is that "restricting freedom"?
    ---Are you capable of answering both??---

    Land cannot be owned in the legitimate sense. The earth is owned in common as no mortal man contributed to it's creation in any way.

    Is interstate travel an exclusively fascist idea... or have I just stepped into the twilight zone?

    Do you somehow not grasp where the idea of a interstate highway system came from?

    All they must do is provide their labor towards it or acquire it through trade or gift. There is no reason they must create the land itself in order to own it.
