Henry George's theories were based on land ownership and how far a business was from a public resource like a mill or waterway. The man lived and died a decade before the model T was produced much less modern transportation and communication. Not only did Henry George never hear of the Internet, he barely lived long enough to see the electric light. Applying the theories of Henry George to modern nations is about as risky as letting the most brilliant caveman design your next airport.
The handouts and entitlements...they are growing accustomed to, just like in Great Britain and France. They want a guaranteed job, with a guaranteed wage, whether they work or not. They want all the benefits that the taxpayer can give them. They want to be able to tell their boss go to hell and have nothing happen to them. They want to be the boss without having to put out anything of their own, either by the sweat of their brow or the money from their pockets.
This is what years of liberalism gets you.

We'll break their skulls first, one occupier at a time. There will be no "revolution" against capitalism as long as I'm alive at least.
