Henry George

Henry George

American writer, politician and political economist, who was the most influential proponent of the land value tax, also known as the 'single tax' on land.
How vainly shall we endeavor to repress crime by our barbarous punishment of the poorer class of criminals so long as children are reared in the brutalizing influences of poverty, so long as the bite of want drives men to crime.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
For as labor cannot produce without the use of land, the denial
of the equal right to the use of land is necessarily the denial
of the labor to its own produce.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is as to whether its services or uses are to be exchanged or not which makes a tool an article of capital or merely an article of wealth. Thus, the lathe of a manufacturer used in making things which are to be exchanged is capital, while the lathe kept by a gentleman for his own amusement is not.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Liberty calls to us again. We must follow her further; we must trust her fully. Either we must wholly accept her or she will not stay. It is not enough that men should vote; it is not enough that they should be theoretically equal before the law. They must have liberty to avail themselves of the opportunities and means of life; they must stand on equal terms with reference to the bounty of Nature.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as
their equal right to breathe the air--it is a right proclaimed by
the fact of their existence. For we cannot suppose that some men
have a right to be in this world, and others no right.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
