A Biographical History of the Georgist Movement



“The grey heads and bald heads are in the majority. The problem that confronts those of us who want the torch held up in the future, is to fill up the ranks. In order to do that many things must be done, but we must not depend on the old or middle-aged. Somehow or other we must devise a way to reach the minds of the young people – when their minds are open, when they are ready for new truths.”

Mr. Rose, of Kansas City, Missouri (from a speech at the 1928 Henry George Foundation Congress, Chicago. Reprinted in: Land and Freedom, September-October 1928)

A relative had loaned the book to Mr. Eichert, and Anthony Arcese expressed an interest in the book, which was passed on to him. He later wrote: "Read Progress and Poverty and see to it that more people with conscience will also read it. It will burn out a lot of fog that obstructs clear vision of the socio-economic problems which confront us. Possibly it will place within vision and understanding the reminder of the Stoic Emperor: 'We are made for cooperation -- like feet, like hands, like eyelids, like the rows of the upper and lower teech.' And the maxim that 'that alone is wise which is just; that alone is enduring which is right.'"
