hey 42 here in Athens in the state of Georgia there is a tree that owned itself this trick is the only tree in the world that had illegal land out of the one it lives upon having fond memories of the tree when growing up the land owner William hated Jackson wanted to protect the tree forever so in the early 1800 he went to court and transferred the deed for the London 8-foot radius around the tree from himself to the tree to this day the legality of the trees property rights have never been questioned planet Earth has 57 million square miles of land or 36 billion acres and until the day comes when we set foot on other planets that's all the land we have lands therefore is the most limited commodity we have thus it comes at a great price as the population increases and more homes are needed to house the next generation the demand for land increases in the past ten years alone one prices have traveled in some countries but who owns the world and I'm not talking about power or money but the actual earth used to stand apart from the wilds of Alaska to Mongolia who really owns the dirt and gravel beneath your feet and more importantly who owns your house and the land it sits up if it really you or is it in fact the bank the government or some kind of London Gentry let's start with America and its 2.3 billion acres of land across 50 states the biggest landowner in America is cable billionaire John Malone who owns a staggering 2.2 million acres he owns enormous ranches in Wyoming New Mexico and Colorado oh he also owned Hume wood castle in Ireland because he thought it was pretty Malone is closely followed by Ted Turner who owns 2 million acres of American land across seven states he is a media mogul he founded CNN Turner's land includes four in ranches 28 homes and the world's largest herd of privately owned bison he also has four girlfriends he spends a week with each one per month because if you're a 78 year old billionaire who owns a massive chunk of America then why the hell not an Englishman's home is his castle no matter how big or small your humble abode is yours and no one could ever take it away from you or can they and come to think of it is it really yours if you own your home buy a leasehold then you have zero right to the ownership of your property or it slum absolutely not you are simply renting the property and have decided to pay for the next ninety nine years rent of Thrones the freeholder is the true owner of the land and everything upon it he or she is your landlord for the next ninety nine forty years if you are wealthy enough to own a flat or even a house in London then you probably don't actually own it all the lumps this guy does instead 26 year old Hugh Grosvenor the seventh Duke of Westminster who owns about half of London he is worth over 12 billion pounds making him the richest person under 30 years old in the world and you are simply renting from him for a very very long time but what if you do own the freehold to your property and what have you paid off your mortgage with no interference from the bank then you must be the one true owner of your castle and this land well not quite I'm sorry to burst your dream of setting up your own country in your back garden but you don't truly own any land in fact not many people do there's a centuries-old doctrine of war called absolute land ownership which is fuzzy at best but it means that you may hold the right to a piece of one and its title what you don't absolutely own it in most countries are government Oh the entirety of the land in that country all you own is the title to that one giving you certain rights to it but not absolute ownership and the government can forcefully buy your house and land off you under vicked you at any time if for example they wish to build a bypass through your home well you've got to build bypasses this is true for every country in the world after all if the government didn't own 100% of the land within that country and it wouldn't really be a complete country now would it it would be Spain – all these little plots of land where people have purchased property each property owner would essentially own their own little country and maps of the world would get really really complicated so countries just have to own 100% of their land in order to create and enforce laws within their boundaries but in truth there is no such thing as outright true land ownership the law surrounding land owners have really messy and they change completely depending on which country you're in in reality you have essentially paid for some rights over a piece of land but your right to the land are overlapped by the rights of other bodies such as the government and the monarchy if there is one speaking of monarchies that's when things get really complicated for example in England the absolute landowner is not the government's but the crown an independent body who acts on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen Queen Elizabeth the second owned every square inch of one of the United Kingdom when you buy a property in the UK you are simply put on a map called the Land Registry to identify that you own the title to that plot of lump in reality you don't own the land you hold it you are a tenant of the crown if you were to really buy that land outright then you would have to draw up a sales contract between you Her Majesty the Queen and the government you have certain historic legal ties of the crown but that would just be one less place for Elizabeth to drive her Land Rover and walk her corgis so I don't think that going to happen one element of the law that exemplifies the fact that you don't actually own your own land is that if you strike oil on your private land in the UK you have no right to it the crown automatically owned any oil or other valuable minerals found below private properties and all you're entitled to is compensation to replace the soil once all the oil has been extracted and sold for lots and lots of money none of which you will ever see but the British Isles is not all that Her Majesty the Queen owns far from it as a matter of fact queen elizabeth ii it's a largest landowner in the world by a large margin the queen owns 1/6 of the Earth's land and she is the only person in the world that owns entire countries queen elizabeth ii owns 6.6 billion acres of one and she is headed stages 16 countries collectively known as the commonwealth realm she owns the entire countries of canada and australia which are the 2nd and 6th largest countries in the world respectively the queen's total land holdings are worth an estimated 25 trillion pounds which makes her by a considerable margin the wealthiest person on the planet but it's not quite as simple as that she is more of a ceremonial owner of set countries while she does technically own the land the individual countries governments have ownership of the titles of the lands and they profit from it the crown doesn't actually see any profit for much of its land holdings because of this the Queen's actual estimated wealth it's somewhere around 275 million pounds I mean that's not to be sniffed up but it's rather measly for somebody who owns 1/6 of the planet excluding oceans she also owns a drive-through McDonald's and Slough because why not when you're queen but symbolic or not she is undoubtedly the world's largest landholder so who then is following in her footsteps well that would be King Salman of Saudi Arabia who inherited the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia after the recent death of his half-brother King Abdullah he upped 553 million acres in total just 8 percent of what the Queen owns but those 553 million acres are rich in oil which gives the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia a GDP of 646 billion dollars at number three on the landowner list is none other than Pope Francis the pump owns the Vatican City which is its own nation state but isn't the Vatican City also the smallest country in the world yes it most definitely is at just 108 acres so then how does that make the Pope the world's third largest landowner well the Roman Catholic Church actually owns 177 million acres of land worldwide which means that the Pope owns 177 million acres of land that of course includes every one of their religious institutions diocese and the Vatican own embassy to the Holy See which are in 81 countries if all land was divided equally between every person on the planet then every single person would own roughly five acres of one just over three four pitches but of course it is land ownership has always been about power wealth and social class and it's still every time you mow your lawn you are imitating the aristocrats of the past in a very figurative sense of course because wealthy aristocrats definitely didn't mow their own lawns you sit the reason that lawns were invented in the first place was to show up and demonstrate power it was a way of saying hey look everyone we're so rich we can afford to own and maintain vast areas of land which we have no real useful but look isn't it impressive with shrubberies mazes and fountains yes lots and lots of fountains in medieval times 100% of the land your average person owned was used to either build upon and live in or to grow food to feed your family most people would starve if they decided to grow topiary instead of cabbages you can't eat toe prick I've tried so wealthy Kings princes lords and ladies would purposely clear all trees from their excessive areas of unused ones and grow grass upon it instead creating a meadow or lawn this served two purposes firstly it was now far easier to spot people trying to invade their castle and secondly they could now show off how much spare ones they have lying around this was even more impressive back then because of course the lawnmower didn't exist neatly trimmed grass lawn had to be painstakingly cut by hand by servants wielding signs and shears the Palace of Versailles is a prime example of this showy offering even with modern gardening tools the amount of money time and manpower that goes into maintaining a garden this stunning is rather impressive the trend of maintaining lawns to impress of us have continued throughout the centuries and although the lawns have become significantly smaller with ever-increasing population your neighbor will probably still sneer at it if you don't keep it nicely trimmed because this medi tradition has become ingrained within our culture but who cares of its exorbitant and completely unnecessary you are the king of your castle and okay you don't actually own your castle but who cares get out there and mow your lawn thanks for watching if you enjoyed this video then please click here to support me on patreon which

  1. Fuck that people claim to own the world in reality no one owns a thing.. tell mother nature you own her then, a quick flood, hurricane or eatthquake will quickly fix your mentality..

  2. that's the basic premise of the United States. Each person a sovereign king of their own. Land ownership and private property is Pinnacle. What King doesn't own land. Yeah I seen multiple highways in China where there's a house in the middle of it because they did not want to move. lol. like in Philadelphia and such you don't have to pay taxes on your land. That's when you're on your own land. Taxes on your land merely turns you into a renter. But that little map that you show with all the spot inside of a country. Imagine that's the United States. 05:03 and imagine people were taught that this is how the Constitution and Declaration of Independence in United States concept is to be implemented. Then imagine they're all armed to keep it that way. so yeah. We all know the King wants to say he owns your land. But this is a fallacy of the elite. It's like I live in a state that makes you pay tax on your car. So I really do not own my car in the state. But like in texas you pay a tax when you buy the car. and that's it now you're the owner of the car. So yeah. And eminent domain this I feel is so un-American. People that argue for it bad news. imagine the United States is 150 million countries. All having a say a seat at the table. By ther vote . Into a agreed-upon system. To settle disputes. And maintain order. I don't know this is what I feel the understanding of which was instilled in me from classes in school. but nowadays kids are coming out of school and they do not even know the three branches of government. Strange I can expect someone from another country to understand this. I guess. This is why you see so many people angry at gun control laws. They figure once they get our guns then they'll tell us we don't own our land. Etc. etc. etc.

  3. Americans only rent their real estate. we all pay property tax so the Government charges rent on it either once or twice a year. Property tax should be outlawed It is part of our Constitution. The full phrase contains the following words: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. I am not happy about renting real-estate that I paid for once.

  4. The current South African Law on LAND is by far the worst. That dream of having small countries in a country is a reality to those who colonized South African. How can the government have control over the country it governs if it only owns small portion of it.

  5. Government says: Imminent Domain = They can take your land and maybe anything else you have.
    However there is someone who can evict the Governments as Bad Tenants and has actually given notice to them even though they ignore his warnings. (Revelation Chapter 11 Verse 18)
    He has a better way that's coming and all Mankind has to do is follow his instructions and his instructions actually make for a better life. https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-gods-kingdom/

  6. Me:goes to my backyard and starts digging
    Brittain: (looking for oil to claim from peeps who have found some)
    Me DIDDLY DEE! (Oil stains my shovel and boots )
    Brittain: HeY?! GiT oVeR hErE!
    Brittain: sorry buddy(proceeds to claim the oil)
    Me: (intense screaming)

  7. No doubt in the last 150 years the jewish bankes Rothschild with the criminal and pirate european monarchies; specially the most criminal one the english monarchy.. God bless the men of good will

  8. It is true that in the U.S. the government can take your land if they want to build something for the state as, the people as a whole, should need the rights to it so the government would buy it and you must leave. They must "buy " it though from you. You do not set the price, THEY do. It has happened to many people. They( Government) may need to put in stores or thruways or something as such as a highway, then you could lose the land.

  9. No one owns the LAND. The LAND own us and will dispose of us like bad case of fleas. Just take look at the dinosaurs. Queen or peasant will make us disappear in a heartbeat and the LAND will still be here

  10. who gives a fuck? there all a bunch of paedophile protectors! fuck the whole of this fucking paedophile protecting humanity! to fucking brain dead to learn anything about child abuse! maybe you should do a post on how everyone refuses to protect both victims and children by keep ignoring every fact about child abuse! tell people the truth, there nothing but a bunch of paedophile protectors who has been corrupted by the biggest bunch of paedophiles on this planet, the justice system and the government! oh, i forgot, no one knows how to use there brain this days! no one knows what being human is anymore!
