"Yes, Our President Has a Clear Mandate and the Will of the People Must Be Heeded"
- By Nate Dickinson (PRFA, November 10, 2004)
The election of 2004 gives President George W. Bush the opportunity to correct the Administration's neglect of so-called environmental matters. Issues such as endangered species, wise use of the National Forests, and oil drilling need to be tackled with intelligence. The influence of radical environmental groups must be challenged and diminished.
"You're Asking for It"
- By Carol W. LaGrasse (PRFA, March 2007)
Local government's disdain for the public, the obstruction of development by local officials, and the willingness of local government to sign away the right of the people to govern locally, while officials assume more power and receive more money, make local government vulnerable to consolidation and regional restructuring.
"The Yukon Cleansing"
- Book Review: A Land Gone Lonesome, By Dan O'Neill, Counterpoint, a Member of Perseus Books Group, 2006
Review by Susan Allen, Reprinted from the New York Property Rights Clearinghouse (Vol. 11, No. 3, Summer 2007, PRFA)
After the ANILCA settlement divided Alaska's wild country among native, state and federal holdings, the National Park Service controlled vast federal landholdings. The Park Service told the people living on the wild lands that they could go on with their accustomed "subsistence lifestyle" as hunters, trappers, placer miners, and the like, but the agency cut off access and instituted regulations and an insurmountable permit application process, which made it impossible for the people to live in the wilds anymore. Old cabins were burned, only to be rebuilt by the Park Service as historic reconstructions.
