The new WE affirms the rights of peoples, and yes also of individuals to an "ownership" of land, or perhaps in a better way of saying, the right of a person to "place" and to "home" and to never be made "homeless" by those having (taking) power-over the people - one time, the king, now know as the "land-lord" - tracing the long history of struggle to return to our free life with (not over) nature and community and with restoration of the individual's dignity goes also the absence of oppression by the absentee lord and the idle rich exploiters.
The inappropriate power-over others that is exercised by the few is the root cause of impoverishment of the people - now so long established in law and commerce that it is considered a natural state of people and the world - this "status quo" will be disrupted by the new WE and all people will be granted a right of ownership (use, not consumption) of place, home, community and a right of peoples (not corporations) to lands and waters, the sustainable harvest of resources and the care and protection of environment, ecosystems and earth as dedicated to the service and wellbeing of the living and the unborn.
"It is for us, the living, rather, to be dedicated to the unfinished work …that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom…." Lincoln at Gettysburg

"Without our land, we cease to be a people"- Not just in N America. Indigenes of the world are beginning to unite. The current issue is land grabs for palm oil, pushed by an unholy alliance of conquistadore elites, regional "development" banks, and (mostly US) commodity speculators. Other incursions have involved involve illegal logging, ranching land grabs (the "hamburger connection"), mining, and the Pueblo-Panama road to resources.
