THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME---A Fairy Tale
By Phyllis Frey
Once upon a time, there was a man and a woman who worked
very hard to save enough money to build their dream home.
That day finally came. Their home was built just the way they
had always planned. Inside, the layout of the rooms and the
placement of the furnishings and artwork were finished to perfection.
All the architectural features and materials they chose were precisely
what they had always wanted. They lived in their finished dream home
very happily for a number of years. One day they decided to take an
extended vacation. They left their home in the hands of a
capable caretaker and went away, worry-free.
Several weeks passed by. When they returned, they opened the front door and were horrified by what they found. The living room had been moved upstairs. The master bedroom was now where the library used to be and the kitchen had exchanged places with the media room. None of the bathrooms were in the same place. All of the artwork and furniture had been replaced. The cars in the garage had been replaced with two bicycles. Nothing was familiar to them in what was once their dream home. When they asked the caretaker what happened, he said that this was his vision of how he thought they should live. He said he had studied all their habits, knew their behaviors and he decided that this was what was best for them.
End of Story
You see, this is what happens when a neighborhood of private homes are replaced with a Sustainable Community. YOU do not get to choose how or where you live. Unelected bureaucrats and Non-Governmental Organizations do. Your locally elected officials no longer have the power to make decisions about the future of your community and you have no say at all. Suddenly your home is being taxed in the extreme in order to pay for the new Sustainable Community. Can’t happen here? It is happening here. And that is why you need to know, so you can make an informed choice to protect your private property ownership rights and retain the right to choose how and where you live.
You might ask, “But how can someone else tell me where to live? And just what is a “Sustainable Community,” anyway?”
That is what I came here to tell you.
