            That would, historically, be more of an observation than
            an assumption...

            And that's more accurately what they told Henry when he
            wouldn't go along with confiscation of privately
            produced capital.

            I await the explanation of how collective ownership of
            capital will permit measurement and recovery of the full
            economic rent of land. On what basis will competing
            prospective users bid for it?
