Commonshare of the Commonwealth

Ownership has cost

No one but the Sovereign Nation owns the land we live on, the wealth beneath it, and the air above. How that wealth is distributed depends on who hold the Power to to control distribution. 

The fact that we pay property tax or lose our Land proves that to privately use it is a privilege that you must pay for. The right of "Eminent Domain" is proof that the Government can take what it needs for the "Common Good" as long as you are compensated for your improvements.

The power to tax personal possessions and monetary wealth is the source of the "commonwealth".  All of the people are entitled to a Dividend on their Commonshare of that wealth. I am a strong believer in the Right of every citizen [Rich or Poor] to receive their dividend on what they own in common. just as a Corporate shareholder does. If the Dividend is adequately used for the General Welfare of the Citizen ,  poverty will not be a plague upon the Population.
