Operation Jubilee - Land Ownership Inequality



It’s not only that the very rich have colossal 
wealth, they also overwhelmingly monopolise it. 
The richest 1% of the population own a quarter of 
total UK wealth, and the richest half control no 
less than 94% of total wealth. Ownership of land 
is even more skewed: 69% of it is owned by 0.3% of the population.

In broad outline, the UK is 60 million acres in 
size, of which 41 million are designated 
“agricultural” land, 15 million are so-called 
natural wastage (forests, rivers, mountains and 
so on) and owned by institutions such as the 
Forestry Commission and the Ministry of Defence, 
and four million are the “urban plot”, the 
densely congested land on which most of the 61 
million people of these islands live.

In sum, 69 per cent of the acreage of Britain is 
owned by 0.6 per cent of the population. Or, more 
pertinently, 158,000 families own 41 million 
acres of land, while 24 million families live on 
the four million acres of the urban plot. No 
other country in Europe, apart from Spain, has 
such an unequal concentration of land ownership. 
The single wealthiest landowner is the Duke of 
Westminster, who owns hundreds of acres of prime 
real estate and land in Belgravia and Mayfair.

As Cahill said, there is no shortage of available 
and uncultivated land in Britain ­ the 
landowners’ estates are vast and, in areas such 
as the Cotswolds and parts of Scotland, say, 
omnipresent. What Britain suffers from, 
especially in the south-east of England, is a 
shortage of land on which housing can be built. 
As a result, the urban plot becomes ever more 
congested, land values and property prices 
continue to grow ­ because scarcity of land 
attracts a premium value ­ and our young people, 
many of them debt-burdened from their university 
years or struggling to find work in a recession, 
cannot afford to buy a flat, let alone a house. 
This forces them into the twilight world of 
short-term rents and disreputable landlords.

Land ownership typically implies house ownership. 
There are many obvious benefits of having land 
and a house. Please, consider what home ownership 
means to you. Some statistics estimate home 
ownership in the UK at about 68%, but most of 
those people probably have mortgages. Cancelling 
the debt will remove the mortgages and then these 
people can really own the houses, because their 
ownership will no longer be conditional on being 
able to make mortgage payments. The remaining 
32%, which probably includes a lot of young 
people, who need the houses the most to be able 
to start business, families, and raise children, 
can be given land and houses outright ­ most 
people already live in houses and there are empty 
houses and land, so there should be enough land 
and houses for everyone. There is also a lot of 
land that is owned by organized religions and 
billionaires that don’t need all that land ­ that 
land can be used to build families, small 
businesses and communities in their place. While 
it is true that some pieces of land are better 
than others, there should be plenty of good land 
and houses for everyone and most people will end 
up much better off as a result than they are now. 
The savings on mortgages can be considered as 
credit to be used to boost the economy. Paying 
for rent and debt does not actually produce 
anything, but simply transfers wealth to those 
who own land and banks from those who don’t. By 
removing the burdens of rent and debt, people can 
focus on working towards actually creating wealth 
doing what they are best at and people should 
also have more money to spend on the products and 
services of others. Land ownership provides 
additional opportunities, because it gives people 
places to set up shops and small businesses. If 
people don’t have to take jobs to pay rent or 
mortgages, they can start businesses to develop 
their talents and have the time to nurture the 
businesses. People are more productive when they 
do what they enjoy doing and what they are best 
at and small businesses help build strong 
communities. Increases in productivity, 
additional economic opportunities that come with 
land ownership, and more available funds should 
translate into greater wealth for the whole 
nation that everyone should be able to benefit from.

If millions of people want to do it, it can be 
done. If millions of people gather at the Houses 
of Parliament all the questions of how exactly to 
carry out land redistribution and debt 
forgiveness can be resolved peacefully and 
justly. The presence of millions of people should 
persuade the military and the police that it is 
best to join their fellow countrymen and claim 
their share of the nation’s wealth and future, 
rather than continue being the tools of 
oppression of a small, greedy and corrupt elite. 
With millions of people openly participating, all 
questions regarding equal land distribution 
should be possible to resolve justly, since 
nobody would want to cheat others, because then 
they themselves could get cheated, and if someone 
does try to cheat others it should quickly become 
obvious to others and in the crowd of millions, a 
person trying to rip people off would be in a 
perilous situation. One point that people bring 
up is that over time, economic inequality happens 
again, and if it does it’s simply a matter of 
declaring another Jubilee. The matters of debt 
forgiveness are even simpler to resolve, because 
unlike with land, cancelling debt does not 
require a physical transfer of objects, but a 
simple shuffling of paperwork and computer 
numbers, the simplicity stemming from the fact 
that the bulk of paperwork will be considered 
void and computer databases simply wiped out.

The largest land owners are self-proclaimed 
elites and organized religions; it is their 
holdings that will be used to pay for the bulk of 
the Jubilee. For millennia, organized religions 
have been parasites on society, hoarding 
treasures and land, while offering no benefit to 
society, and usually harming society through 
unjust persecutions, wasteful rituals, countless 
wars, and subversion of individual pursuits of 
virtue. If they really serve God, they don’t need 
expensive jewellery and lots of land to do it, so 
the land of organized religions can be 
redistributed. Corrupt elites hold high-level 
positions in state and private enterprise and 
consider themselves to be above the common 
people, hence the term elite. They also consider 
themselves above the law and use paid-for 
legislators, personal networks and expensive 
lawyers to apply different legal standards to 
themselves than to others. One particular example 
is the queen, who enjoys all kinds of special 
benefits at the expense of the nation. More 
commonly, the elites use expensive lawyers to 
give themselves a legal advantage whenever they 
feel they need it in their pursuit of multiplying 
their wealth at your expense, or when they commit 
crimes and get caught. The elites also control 
and include politicians, who twist the laws to 
give an even greater legal advantage to the 
elites, to funnel public funds to them, and to 
grant the elites privileges above the working 
people. The elites even have the audacity to 
claim that their ruthless profiteering is their 
contribution to society and they say it’s hard 
work so they deserve to have all that wealth, and 
that if you were as treacherous and conniving as 
they are, then you would have that much wealth 
too. Through their positions in society and 
government they control the military industrial 
complex and declare wars to build their empires 
on the blood of working people. They use their 
intelligence assets to carry out false flag 
attacks to manipulate the public into supporting 
and fighting their wars. They use their business 
as fronts for the drug trade and their banks to 
launder the drug money. Their control of 
military, intelligence, businesses and banking 
allows them to maintain control of Afghanistan to 
profit from poisoning the world with heroin and 
they similarly control and profit from other 
aspects of the global drug trade. The elites 
engineered the debt crisis to increase their 
control of world finance and to accelerate the 
transfer of wealth from the working people to 
themselves through bail-outs that benefit the 
“too big to fail” elites at the expense of 
everyone else after those very elites have reaped 
record profits to cause the crisis to begin with 
and to place virtually everyone else in debt to 
them. They are building a police state with 
legislation, surveillance and police for the sake 
of putting themselves above the working class 
people and maintaining their obscene wealth and 
power. Presiding over all this is an impostor 
monarch, crowned on a counterfeit Stone of 
Destiny, sworn to broken oaths, party to 
countless crimes, including murder of Princess 
Diana, and the largest land owner on the planet, 
enjoying special treatment and legal status above 
the people that she has sworn to serve. It’s 
their crimes that got us into this mess, so they 
are the ones that should pay. This should also 
hopefully be a lesson to others to prevent them 
from doing the same thing in the future. They 
have worked very hard to cheat people and if we 
do this Jubilee then all their cunning and 
deception will have been for nothing. If you 
think that it’s right for them to accumulate 
ridiculous wealth at your expense, if you are 
happy with your position as an employee, if you 
prefer to rent a house instead of owning it, if 
you like being in debt to them and paying 
interest to make them even richer, while you work 
to be able to make interest payments and to pay 
rent and they enjoy the products of your labour, 
if you support the wars they declare in your 
name, if you like paying taxes so they can use 
your money to place you under increasing amounts 
of surveillance and build a police state, so that 
they can charge you more fees, taxes and fines to 
funnel into more of their projects ­ if you think 
that this is the way things should be, then the 
Jubilee is not for you, and we suggest you allow 
the 5th of November to pass unmarked. But if you 
see what we see, if you feel as we feel, then 
meet us in front of Parliament on November 5th 
and together we shall give them a 5th of November 
that shall never ever be forgotten.

In the meanwhile, join the Anonymous Operation 
Jubilee and keep track of it to make sure we get 
millions of people to show up. Getting millions 
of people to show up is important to prevent the 
police and the military from bullying us. Stay 
Anonymous and help others be Anonymous for the 
sake of security. Consider again the benefits of 
having your own house and put in the amount of 
effort accordingly ­ it might take you a couple 
of decades of hard work to save up for a house, 
and here you might get it in a couple of weeks 
together with your debts wiped out. The more 
people show up, the less work it is per person 
and the safer it is, so get as many people to join as possible.

Anons world-wide, show solidarity with your UK 
brothers and spread the message, and if you like 
the idea, declare a Jubilee in your nation.

Fear not therefore: for there is nothing covered 
that shall not be revealed; and nothing hid that 
shall not be made known. What I tell you in 
darkness, that speak ye in the light and what ye 
hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. Matthew 10:26-27

Die Pride and Envie; Flesh, take the poor's advice.
Covetousnesse be gon: Come, Truth and Love arise.
Patience take the Crown; throw Anger out of dores:
Cast out Hypocrisie and Lust, which follows whores:
Then England sit in rest; Thy sorrows will have end;
Thy Sons will live in peace, and each will be a friend.
