    I haven't finished the video, but the proposal fails to address what mine do(it's interesting so far ) That is, shrinking the gap between rich and poor. It's an equal way of profiting from land, however it's unable to combat the forces behind class disparity.

    With a more equal way of profiting from the land, wouldn't that help shrink the gap between rich and poor?

    No. You should be neither Master nor Servant, if you claim to be a Libertarian. Privatized tyranny is no less tyrannical than when it is done by the State.
