Quote For Today; February 20th

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. 

Henry George

Henry George was an American economic and social philosopher who popularized the economic policies which have become known as Georgism. These assert that natural resources and opportunities belong equally to all residents of a community; while individuals can own the wealth or value which they develop with these, societies as a whole maintain standards of fair economic exchange including “location rent” or “land tax” with respect to individual use of the natural resources of common necessity to all humanity.
