Usually love the videos, but the assumption you're making throughout this one -- that the feds are somehow withholding land that rightfully belongs to the states -- is not a fact but an opinion. Which is fine -- but should be presented as such, rather than as an explanation of the situation. I live in one of those majority-federal-land states, and here's how it seems to break down here: On the political left, the feeling is that the feds generally do a fairly good job, and it's great to have land preserved by the (relatively) stable US gov't, rather than the states (which may easily be persuaded to sell it to developers, miners, paper companies, or whomever). On the political right, the feeling is that the states should have control, or (increasingly) that the government shouldn't own land at all and rather should sell it to be managed privately. And I think it's fair to say that the vast chasm between these views on federal land contributes significantly to why many of these federal-land-heavy Western states have such extreme urban-rural divides. Also, this is fairly minor, but . . . I think it's pretty inaccurate -- even if speaking 'in general' -- to say the Forest Service deals mainly with resource management and conservation, while BLM also does recreation. Yes, the Forest Service is technically still housed under the Dept. of Agriculture (owing to its resource-management past), but my experience working with the Forest Service is that it and BLM aren't much different in this regard: they both try to balance all three of these (sometimes competing) priorities. Of course, that balance can vary significantly depending on the particular forest or BLM district -- and certainly between presidential administrations -- but both those agencies try to do all of the above . . . as best they can on ever-shrinking budgets.

Forest lands and blm lands are basically lands for the people, so long as you follow the rules and don't burn it down. I would hate to live in a state with no federal land because you couldn't do anything unless you on owned a big piece of private property!
