Well, on the surface the problem is really pretty simple or at least it can be argued as such. Land is a fixed volume commodity. Once it's all used up it's gone, unless you are the Chinese government building Naval bases in the middle of the deep blue sea. But seriously, since land is limited and more and more people are inhabiting the earth, the need for land to accommodate the additional people will always be used as a reason for needing more land by those who can develop it. Never mind the fact that we leave in the wake of our sprawl vast ghettos of crumbling structures which we could redevelop and use, while also cleaning up an eyesore in the process. But no, the big corporate development types and their government bureaucrat friends always seek new and raw land to build on, no matter where it might be. And that is one reason for the book and it usually doesn't turn out well for the smaller property owners in terms of their lifestyle or their pocketbooks.
In the process of moving from rural or small town into an urbanized sprawl, people who already own the land that others want, many of whom have lived there for generations, are ultimately forced off their property by many factors. First is the likelihood that those very owners can't afford the new tax assessments as rezoning raises the value with the boon in development and increased zoning density. And the taxing factor is also heavily increased by the cost of infrastructure where there has been little, including new roads, sewer and water systems, schools, police and fire, to name a few. So the old septic tank and well water systems are replaced by urban systems with high cost and often low quality while the long term residents are expected to pay the freight. And then there are new problems such as neighborhood flooding and noise, air and water pollution which worsens quickly. And finally in the tax department, inheritance taxes based upon increased valuation mean surviving loved ones must sell the property just to pay the taxes on the land which they thought they owned.
And while this area of reasoning is certainly a good reason for my book, the story will take you to a much deeper cause, one which is sinister and severe and just lurking behind the shadows. That, my friends, is the desire by powerful elites, elites that owe no allegiance to any particular nation, to fully enact a New World Order, a One World Government, where appointed bureaucrats dictate to citizens of the world they don't even know. Just take a look at the European Union to see how such an organization develops and how the only thing it wants from the former sovereign nations is their money and their independence. And that is the real reason for my book, for with the onset of United Nations' Agenda 21 and now Agenda 30, the plan is drawn up and ready to implement to move large numbers of people off of the land and into tightly clustered, high population zones where the people can be easily controlled.
Will it happen to America or will we stand for our independence and sovereignty? Only the political winds and how they blow will determine that, but I hope that anyone who is concerned about the right to own property under the unalienable rights that we hold dear might find it worthwhile to read Thou Shall Not Take Our Land. It is designed to show what results when a nation stops paying attention to what is really happening and suffers the consequences. And remember, folks, it's fiction, fiction depicting things right here in Alachua County, Florida sixteen years from now and the way they might evolve. I hope you'll give it a look. Here's the link.
