People will be unable to treat each other the way nature intended until government does. As long as we’re treated like cattle, we can’t spend our lives and share our precious time on this Earth the way we actually should. Nature, land, is everyone’s daily source of life through sleep, so we deserve equal access to it or government is not working for the people, but for investors.
#Georgism is just the single tax, according to George. He merely explained in detail, what many have discovered, that land is different from the rest of an economy. Georgism is not a philosophy, just logic: everyone should get the same deal on land, our daily source of life.
The science of economics was discovered when people noticed that land plays a big role in a national economy, but every other part of it was created by labor. So, land is the resource and labor (people) is the product. But this fact is ignored by schools, the press and politicians so that society will continue paying the elite for the privilege of living on “their” planet and sleeping on “their” Earth at night.
Society must be confused or else we would not be suffering financially under democracy, where WE choose the law.
About what is society confused? The science of political economy.
Why? So society (and our ecosystem) can be plundered by those in charge.
University economics is based on (and funded by) neo-classical economic theory. The classical economists said land and labor are the 2 basic factors of production and taxing land ownership, not labor, should be the source of public revenue.
Why? Because land is different from capital. Everyone needs it every day to live, like oxygen. So, we can’t have a meritocracy without equal access to land. We can only have a variation of feudalism.
But, landed interests fund academia and force “neo-classical” economic theory (which conflates land with capital) on us, which is why people think economics is complex, complicated, a matter of opinion, not a real science, etc. It doesn’t make sense, which IS THE INTENT, evidenced by the fact that it has continued this way for so long.
The big lie, the hoax that keeps the public thinking we must give more and more power to the government despite its corruption is that capitalism is free enterprise, the alternative to communism / socialism.
But free enterprise, according to classical (scientific) economic theory, requires equal access to land, the basic source of life and wealth for every human being. Because it is impossible for people to be free where they don’t have an equal right to possess land.
Equal access to location (existence) is the basis of individual economic (biological) freedom. That is why authoritarians will make every promise imaginable except land ownership. Because they know when everyone has easy access to land (nature’s generosity, life, time), they will lose their need to be governed.
Your political party represents the interests of donors, who want human beings to be inexpensive.
So, if you want people to be treated with the value we deserve, promote the land value tax system.
The idea of taxing land ownership instead of wealth production makes perfect sense to most people who think about it for a few minutes. But, we are taught that all taxes are the same.
Also, we are taught that the science of economics is complicated, mysterious and boring. But, that is too convenient for those in power. And isn’t it obvious that taxation should be for the use of resource, not the amount of wealth produced with it?
Cheap labor (poverty), we are told, is the fault of nature (or human nature), not government. But, it IS the fault of government and the information industry (news, schools and churches).
Deception, not scarcity, is the only reason for society’s financial oppression. So, we will easily repair the situation once enough people know how (despite mainstream media).
