Mises: Large-scale ownership of land

"Nowhere and at no time has the large-scale ownership of land come into being through the working of economic forces in the market. It is the result of military and political effort. Founded by violence, it has been upheld by violence and by that alone." Ludwig von Mises

(Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, (2009 reprint edition) pg 375)
