    Like? The problem is its irrelevance to modern capitalism. Can you help them and refer to a source that supports the Georgist position? They go all shy all of a sudden!

    My reasoning for it is all axiomatic. Now, I'm not exactly a "georgist" so to speak, more like, a "geoist" (which is a lot more general of a term than "georgist", which refers to the theories of one man).

    My position is that we should go to anarcho-capitalism WITH THE EXCEPTION of:

    1. Regulation on land use to make it so that land is both affordable to almost everyone, and

    2. We might perhaps need a miniarchist domestic law enforcement, and

    3. We need to sometimes fund education/training so that someone that has both no money and little marketable skill can feasably obtain a marketable skill/knowledge.

    I don't even believe in publicly funding the military.

    So nothing to support your position but dogma? Not interested, sorry!

    Logic =/= dogma. It's pretty obvious that making land artificially easy to acquire large amounts of will cause a murdering-to-the-economy land bubble.

    Making it harder to acquire large amounts of land, but easier to obtain a small amount of land so that almost everyone can have a place to live without going homeless, will do the opposite. Freeing resources and money from Big Land Rent will allow said money to be pumped back into the rest of the economy and fuel it to grow.

    The only question now is, how to we go about "making it harder to acquire large amounts of land, but easier to obtain a small amount of land so that almost everyone can have a place to live"?

    A logical position would be able to refer to key political economic support. You can't. Sorry but you're wasting my time. Unless you can support your position you have nothing more powerful than a David Icke-esque reference to lizard people

    ohhh wait..you're asking me to (*)(*)(*)(*)ing appeal to authority? (*)(*)(*)(*) that. Logical fallacy that is.

    Anyways. Why don't I give you MY ideas on why my idea of geoism would work better than either Marxism or right-wing-style capitalism or Keynesianism (which is really a sort of socialistic capitalism hybrid)?

    Support your position with political economy. That you can't condemns you to a simple result: you have dogmatic foot stamping and no content.

    I'm a market socialist and I can of course refer to political economy in support. Get back to me when you've thought things through. Internet georgists don't half come across as a little work shy when it comes to supporting their position with anything more substantial than "cos I say so"
