1) How much is the minimal amount of labour that needs to be “mixed with the land” in order for it to qualify as “homesteaded”? If I cut down a tree can I claim the entire forest for my logging company?
2) How much land is it permissible to take at any one time?
3) How high-up does this “homesteading” apply? Could you charge airlines for flying over your property? And do you own everything down to the core of the planet?
4) How long must land be apparently unused before somebody else is allowed to “homestead” it? Or is it that person’s for all eternity, even if that means it is completely wasted land that others need in order to survive?
5) If roads are to be privatized then the currently public roads must move into private hands. How would a person “homestead” an already-existing road?
6) Does this apply to all publicly-owned property? Could a person “homestead” NASA HQ, and if so, how? How would someone “homestead” the Large Hadron Collider? How about publicly-owned satellites?
7) Does discovering a star/planet/asteroid/etc. qualify as “homesteading” it?
8) What happens to the graves in publicly-owned graveyards when somebody “homesteads” them and wants to use the land for other purposes?
9) How will we defend ourselves when the wrong people “homestead” the enormous stockpiles of nuclear weapons?
10) If person A grows a tree on the border of their property, and an acorn falls into the garden of their neighbour, person B, and starts growing into a tree, is that a violation of the NAP and does that entitle person B to blow person A’s fucking head off?
11) Do beavers, ants and other structure-building creatures “homestead” and, if so, how can they be expected to navigate the minefield of an “an”cap legal system?
12) What happens to future generations when all the land has been “homesteaded” and is in private hands? Would they have any alternative to wage slavery?
13) Would the “homesteading principle” lead to a reckless and irresponsible drive to build anything wherever people can in order to claim land before it all goes? Couldn’t this just lead to ecological devastation that we can ill afford?
