Should parachutes spin?

Here is an interesting video I found on spinning parachutes, auto-rotating rotor blades and more.

Basically, it's a comparison between descent rates of simple parachutes, ones that rotate during descent and rotating blades as a replacement for parachutes.

It's interesting enough as a video, but there are also brief mentions of lift and drag for those that get excited but that 👍
