Description 38 IS UTAH SAHARA BOUND? watersheds, but minority sportsmen organizations forbid their removal. There is not the slightest doubt that unwise grazing use is responsible for soil depleted ranges, yet at this very hour there are bills pending in congress that seek to divert public lands to private management. Utah a hundred years ago, like Plymouth in 1620, was colonized by a people guided by religious motives. They practiced to the best of their understanding the Golden Rule. They answered affirmatively to the Biblical query "Am I my brother's keeper?" What we need most at this beginning of a new century in Utah is not a new social philosophy but rather a return to the ethical ideal expressed in Leviticus 25:23, where the Lord says "... the land is mine, for ye are strangers and sojourners with me." This bit of gospel, basic in the genesis of an ancient society, is fundamental in the perpetuation of our own. It implies the social wickedness of passing on to an unborn generation a land impaired by selfish exploitation. It teaches the age-old truth that to each generation is imposed the stewardship of the land, but in society now and of the future is vested the ownership.
