Single Sentence Saturday: About teaching a man to fish

”Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” only works if the man has access to a lake, but lakefront property tends to be expensive and lakefront property owners don’t take kindly to trespassing.

The non-profit Surfrider Foundation fights, and fights and fights, for equal access for all to every bit of oceanfront (sadly, not lake) access. Currently this freedom is the LAW in both Hawaii and California, despite billionaire (and very ironically UBI supporter, you can be partially cool and still an asshole too ...) Vinod Khosla's attempt to take it to the Supreme Court. Speaking of assholes, wonder which side Kavanaugh would fall on this ... ?

Your analogy would hold in Europe where all fish and game belong to the landowner.
