Tenet No. 24 of A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders re defending the realm of shared public gifts

“Many of the places we care for will be public— state and national forests, wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, parks.  We hold these riches in common, as citizens, and we need to defend them against those who seek to plunder our private lands, for the benefit of a few.  In an era obsessed with private wealth, private rights, and private property, we need to reclaim a sense of our common wealth— the realm of shared gifts, resources and skills.”
