Web Site of Robert John Morton
This Web site contains my book "The Lost Inheritance" plus over 400 essays, returning a total count of well over a million words. It is copiously illustrated with diagrams, photographs, animations and Java applets [which can also be launched as Web Start applications from non-Java browsers]. [PDF]

The title "The Lost Inheritance" refers to what I see as the self-evident birthright of every human being. It is the inalienable right to the allodial possession and unencumbered use of sufficient terrestrial re­sources [habitable land] to enable him to transform his work into his needs of life. As incontrovertibly evinced by the inexcusable poverty and disparity on this planet, established economic systems are cata­strophically incapable of fairly providing the means for a man to turn his labour into his needs of life.

My poems are extracts from the book. I am not a poet. These poems just came into my mind, each as a sudden convulsive flood of words, venting my frust­rations with the present world and exuding my hopes and aspirations for a better world in the future - no matter how distant that future may be.

My projects are a sequel to the book. They are concerned with the practicalities of establishing a society, in which all citizens possess sufficient resources to enable each to turn his work into his needs of life independently of markets. In these projects, I expound my concept of a Universal Terrestrial Dwelling, in which a family may live with all modern comforts independently of utility grids for water, elec­tricity, gas, sewage and communications; thus opening up the vastness of the planet's unsettled land area for sustainable human habitation.

My interests stem from my previous work and hobbies. I have written software for navigation, telecoms and administrative systems. I have studied and thought deeply about science. I have used my accumulated knowledge in all these areas as a source of concepts and principles up on which my ideas expressed in "The Lost Inherit­ance" are based. - Robert John Morton YE572246C
