Why I Oppose Federal Regulation
Abstract:In this article a leading representative of the lumber industry gives in detail his reasons for opposing federal regulation of privately owned forest lands. The most fundamental of these reasons is that such regulation is inconsistent with his political philosophy and in his judgment implies the destruction of our American system of government, which was designed to protect the individual from economic, political, and spiritual monopoly.
