Once the parents die, the children then have access to a full two acres. Within reason, if a family of 300 finds hardship...so be it. If a child gets married, the couple gets access to land equal to the divisions entitled to them at that moment (i.e. 1/3 acre + 5/9 acre). When parents and/or siblings die, that number rises.

He who controls land has power. Land is the biggest source of wealth any individual can own. I say cut the Capitalist line of thinking and live like a community, enforcing self responsibility the whole way. Living in urbia makes me sick.

(How's that for cheering you up...)
