Kirsten Lombard - Property Rights
Published on Aug 29, 2013
Kirsten Lombard, Organizer for the Wisconsin 9/12 Project, presents on the topic of Property Rights and how government programs for developing land aren't as beneficial as they seem.
Grant money, Farmland Preservation Agreements, and Conservation Easements are just a few examples of how the government can control and tell you what you can and can't do with property that you own.
As momentum builds for a "Sustainable Future", it is worthwhile to step back and take a long look at the big picture, painted with a broad brush to reveal what Virginia might look like as the vision for the Commonwealth is more fully implemented over the next 20 years or so.
Donna Holt, President and Executive Director of Virginia Campaign for Liberty, discloses the official documents published by countless government agencies and non-government organizations as public policy for the transformation of our great nation for a "Sustainable America". These documents were rarely reported in the news, and average working people as well as state and local lawmakers have no idea what sustainable development really means, and even less knowledge of what is in store for the future. If the vision of sustainable development continues to unfold as it has in the last decade, life in the Commonwealth and the rest of the nation will be quite different.
