It stops the land owner leeching and ensures that land it used most productively, in other words, beneficial to society rather than the land owner reaping unearned economic rent.

So if the land owner doesn't have a rightful claim to the land, why does the community have a rightful claim? Wouldn't that community just be depriving other communities of the opportunities available at that location?
