From a Christian non-conformist think-tank…

Support for a land value tax

"For Christians, and all people of faith, there could hardly be a fairer tax than a land tax. If we believe that the earth was created for everybody to share equally, it is hard to justify a small elite benefiting exclusively from large parts of it. In the UK, land ownership is more heavily concentrated in the hands of a wealthy few than it is in many developing countries. 69 per cent of Britain’s land is owned by less than one per cent of the population. Much of that 69 per cent is in the hands of the aristocracy, which means the current owners have inherited it: ownership is not a result of their own endeavours."

  • Too bad Leopold (Belgium) isn’t amongst us anymore – he owned the Congo for a while, and must have been a great example for the Aristocracy such as H.E. Libertas.
    But baybe Bob (Mugabe) could help you guys out?
    He definitely has a certain amount of experience in his own land.
