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.
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]
Man must be doing something, or fancy that he is doing something, for in him throbs the creative impulse; the mere basker in the sunshine is not a natural, but an abnormal man.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To prevent government from becoming corrupt and tyrannous, its organization and methods should be as simple as possible, its functions be restricted to those necessary to the common welfare, and in all its parts it should be kept as close to the people and as directly within their control as may be.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The value of a thing is the amount of laboring or work that its possession will save the possessor.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
There are three ways by which an individual can get wealth-by work, by gift, and by theft. And, clearly, the reasons why the workers get so little is that the beggars and thieves get so much.More Henry George quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
