unfortunately, hermitting also has its disadvantages.
you're welcome to hang out on crown land - property of the Queen of England, in right honour - but you have to occupy that land for a minimum of 7 years without challenge before you can claim rights to the land.]
It's possible that you're right (according to the conventional wisdom), but I'm pretty sure you're not (based on this new knowledge).
you're right, i was mistaken - it's 60yrs of occupation for you to be able to exercise property rights
"Through extended periods of unauthorized occupation the Crown can lose its title to public
land. All right, title and interest of the Crown in public land is extinguished after an individual, through his/her and his/her predecessors have occupied public land continuously, exclusively and openly for a period of 60 years."
you can hate the 'game' all you want, but you have to accept the fact that you were born in to it.
You're not getting it, man. That's why this is so amazing; we don't
have to accept that we were born into this 'game', where you can get charged money for not wearing a seatbelt in your own car... (not that that's the worst thing, it just shows how ridiculous the current system is).
When you engage in acts, such as moving a vehicle from private property to the public roads, you are then consenting to being subject to the laws which encompass that activity. If you drive on a road, there is an expectation that you will be wearing a seatbelt. Should you be found not wearing your seatbelt, you may be subject to a fine. Should you ride your skateboard on the road, paid for through taxes, you are also subject to the rules of the road.
I'm not arguing for a case regarding dumb laws. I've always opined that laws should be in place with the greater good of all citizens in mind. Laws which impact the person but have no impact on others seem superfluous. Legality should not be a moral compass.
One could always move to a 'less-developed' country where the laws aren't quite as broad-reaching and developed. I know of a number of people who are happier living as surf bums and with their heads in the amazon's tree canopy.
