Some quotes for 2017...

1) ‘From about 1607 to 1636, the Government 
pursued an active anti- enclosure policy’ – W. E. 
Tate, The English Village Community and the Enclosure Movements (1967)

2) ‘If the reign in its social and agrarian 
policy may be judged solely from the number of 
anti-enclosure commissions set up, then 
undoubtedly King Charles I is the one English 
monarch of outstanding importance as an agrarian 
reformer.’ – W. E. Tate, The English Village 
Community and the Enclosure Movements (1967)

3) ‘From 1635 to 1638 compositions [fines] were 
levied in respect of depopulations [enclosures] 
in several counties of which an account is 
fortunately preserved. Some 600 persons were 
fined during this period, the amounts in some 
cases being considerable.’ – E. C. K. Gonner, Common Land and Inclosure (1912)

So much emphasis is placed on select Jewish 
participation in Bormann companies that when 
Adolf Eichmann was seized and taken to Tel Aviv 
to stand trial, it produced a shock wave in the 
Jewish and German communities of Buenos Aires. 
Jewish leaders informed the Israeli authorities 
in no uncertain terms that this must never happen 
again because a repetition would permanently 
rupture relations with the Germans of Latin 
America, as well as with the Bormann 
organization, and cut off the flow of Jewish 
money to Israel. It never happened again, and the 
pursuit of Bormann quieted down at the request of 
these Jewish leaders. He is residing in an 
Argentinian safe haven, protected by the most 
efficient German infrastructure in history as 
well as by all those whose prosperity depends on his well-being.
