If you thought planning government and economics was impossible, try planning nature… We all know nature can be a chaotic beast paying no heed to the whims of humans, but what happens when humans try to lay out a plan for mother nature? What happens when those plans are made by governments? What happens to the recourse of individuals who own private property that fall within the boundaries of these government made nature-plans? Check out episode 14 when the Liberty Hippies talk about the International Joint Commission, and their plan for the St. Lawrence Seaway.
