All land ownership comes from appropriation, doesn't it? After the ancient flood, migration was initiated and continued until East met West (orient versus occident) and empires formed from familial, tribal, then territorial ambitions in which humanity sought some place to call home. Expansionism followed and when crowding became an issue, moves were initiated, then mandated. Who in this world is not a migrant if one considers migration was instigated in ancient times and colonization became its tool. Only one nation is promised its ancient home in the future; and it does not take an ancient scholar to know to 'they' are.
