If you are standing on the street down the block from a beach why can't you stand on that beach?

Why do you need a residence, permit, license, pass, badge to stand on that beach and yet can stand one inch from that beach?

If you are "permitted" to enter a food store via walking on the street why are you banned from standing and walking on sandy ground?

Simplistically because the haves do not want to share with the havenots.

 

A few keywords for a broader discussion:

Hardwork

Trash

Maintenance/Upkeep

Achievement

Presumption

Tribalism/Class

Selfishness

Selfcenteredness

You should be able to stand anywhere below the mean-high-tide mark.  In 49 states, this refers to a specific point on the shore.  It is halfway between (1) the mark that the highest high-tide makes (picture full-moon) and (2) the mark made by the lowest high-tide (1/4 moon?).  This would be a universal truth if not for Rhode Island.  There, rather than using “science”, politicians decided that the mean high tide mark is about at the horizon.  Beach associations applauded!!!

I don't want to get into the whole privacy controversy, and I'm an advocate of opening beaches, but I can see the difference.   Sidewalks are the equivalent of roads, but for pedestrians.   Yes, people can stop and chat but for the most part they are for moving from one place to another.   Beaches, by their very nature, are places where people will often stop and stay put, thus the problem.   An analogy is highways often have signs saying no stopping unless in an emergency.   This helps safety and the flow of traffic.   Yet these same highways have designated rest areas where people gather.   That's why highways are open and rest stops are closed in most places.

Because we are timid enough to let them get away with telling us that.  By an 1866 Supreme Court ruling all those things are illegal.  But we let them get away with telling us that.  As far as beaches and mean high water marks etc. access to and from is allowed by the Public Trust doctrine.  But they tell us we can't and we let them get away with that.  See the problem here?  It's not them, it's US!  WE let them get away with that.

There's a line from the movie "Hunt for Red October".  A Russian submarine captain is defecting and has a discussion with his other officers.   He's says "a revolution every now and then is a good thing".

That tree of liberty is drying up, thats why you're not allowed to go fishing.
Fishing is a source of FOOD, just look at what they are doing to the food chain and the ''economy'' and you might understand whats really happening. Most peoples being under ''voluntary'' (for now) ''house arrest'' aint looking too good for ''liberty'' worldwide...
