This Land Is Your Land

This land is my land. But it's not their land.

Whose land is it anyway?

The squirrels have been banished to the street outside the Kingdom if they're looking for a bite to eat. Here some kind soul might take pity on them and feed them without risk of retaliation.

Why feed the squirrels? Because when we took the land, we took away their food sources, leaving little for them to eat. We don't care for them the way we care for our domesticated pets. There are no cans of squirrel food hanging from the trees.  But we have a history of doing things like that, don't we? It's all about us, never about them.

But that's a mistake: "Unless you become as little squirrels, you shall not enter the Kingdom."
