It wouldn't let me reply to your latest comment, for some reason.

I agree that the state maintains control over a certain geographic location; that's what makes it a state. Agreed. On a minor note, while I agree it's the monopoly on power in its area, I wouldn't claim that it has authority, because to me that implies actual ownership rather than just the means to exercise de facto ownership. But you knew that's what I meant...

But again, it's confusing to say that government owns it. For instance, if someone said that a certain family owns a home, and someone asked who they meant by "a family", they would simply have to list off the individuals in this family to whom they were referring. So, who do you mean by "the state"? Does it include every single elected official, or also everyone employed in the public sector, or everyone who pays taxes? And if you can pin down who this person/people are, that only opens up a myriad of other questions.

And I understand that the questions don't mean that it's illogical, but just so many questions that pop up in even defining who owns the country, it serves as an indicator that this may be a faulty line of reasoning. I've heard that before the heliocentric model of the solar system was popularized, in geocentric models it took many pages and pages of extremely intricate circles within circles within circles just to track the locations of the Moon and of Mars each night. It wasn't wrong because it was so complicated, but rather it was complicated because it was wrong, or that they had the fundamentals wrong. And it seems to me the same thing is at work here when adhering to the idea that "the government" (thus unnamed) owns and has the right to all the land within the USA, as if they had the deed in their collective pocket.

World view? I'm just trying to get an answer as to who this person or people are who "own the country". Obviously it's the citizens who each own their plot of land, or farm, or share of an apartment building or whatever. You haven't done anything to convince me of who or what owns it. You defend violence against nonviolent people in the form of the many laws and taxes we have as actually defensive and voluntary, because all 300,000,000 of us are renting land from someone. If you live in a world of words, you can say anything and have it make sense to you. It's like I'm asking you how clouds are formed, and you're responding with "God did it." That solves nothing and only further confuses the issue.

The state has sovereignty over its territory. That's the cornerstone of being a state. The government governs and owns the state. No single person needs to have a deed to the country just because you subscribe to the limited individualistic views.

That's fine.

I was just trying to illustrate that "the government" can't own anything. People own things. Once we agree on that (which I think makes total sense), you can't really claim that "the government" can. By "the government owns the country", do you mean President Obama himself owns every inch of this land? Everyone who holds public office each owns an equal share of the nation? Who?

Obviously it's a ridiculous thing to claim, and trying to rationalize how some unnamed, conceptual figure owns all this land just leads to confusion. Logical things are easy to understand, or at least to understand the basics of. Once you have to contort your argument into such an unnatural position that you're defending that PersonX owns the land that 300,000,000 Americans pay for and live on, it should be painfully obvious that you've made a wrong turn somewhere.

It's only unnatural and "ridiculous" if you're completely full of shit and intentionally obfuscate things based around your niche world view.

What do you mean, "the USA". There is no person who is "the USA". It's like saying you chopped down a forest, or met a family. While presidents, trees, and family members are real things--governments, forests, and families are really just concepts. I don't mean to get picky or particular, but I think it matters.

Who are you saying actually owns the country? President Obama? He and the five hundred or so representatives and senators? State senators? The Supreme Court? Members of the military? District Court judges? Citizens? "The government" can't own the country. Speaking only in concepts leads to us having a debate over different meanings. How do you define "the USA"?

User avatar #195 - schneidend (10 hours ago) [-]
The country can definitely own property. It's the sovereign territory of the state, recognized not just by itself, but by its allies and enemies. But, anyway, this debate is becoming completely asinine, so I'm done.
