This land was your land

May 1, 2017

Field and Stream, which veers into politics only where that affects hunting and fishing, has a timely article on the movement to privatize federal lands by first giving them to the states, ultimately for the benefit of the extraction industries and other economic rentiers. Anglers and hunters should join forces with hikers, kayakers, boaters, birders, and environmentalists, on the desire to preserve what wild areas remain for future generations. Alas, many of them have been sold on a false notion of patriotism that shuns environmental issues and pretends that in the arena of public and corporate governance, the federal government is uniquely evil.
