Summary
"Belongings argues that the food crisis is at heart a land crisis. One direct effect of the commodification of land since the enclosure movement has been hunger. Another has been the concentration of wealth, power and property in the hands of a few. Belongings explores the core principles of private property (as a cultural product and economic precept). These principles include prioritization of simplicity (one owner, one product, clear title, control by one or two people), prioritization of profit-making uses, land transfers for profit only, growth as a universal good, tolerance of waste, and lack of accountability for effects incurred at a distance. Belongings applies the analysis of land use and relations usually reserved for the ethnography of others to our own situation, drawing on the immediacy of stories from farms, First Nations, public land, houses and our own backyards."--
