American exceptionalism is predicated chiefly upon the peculiarities of land . . . land is a gift of nature, not a creation of human beings; and land was available in great quantity to Euro-Americans blithely indifferent to Native Peoples' occupation of the Americas.

Join a roundtable discussion of how to retake the land of the USA for all residents of the territory poetically known as Turtle Island.

The 4th of July, Independence Day, is a dismal sleight of mind if the land question is not considered in all its robust relevance to liberty. In the absence of equality of access to the social and economic power of place, what possibility can there be for individualism when one party must pay another party for mere "right" to use the Earth?

Ignoring the land question, which is to say, dismissing land as but a species of capital rather than as a gift of nature to all, is a weak excuse for existential contempt of others.

Those attending live must RSVP (see above Contact information). Supper will follow discussion.
