photo of Robert John Morton 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
