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)

    ..."Freedom comes first. Men and women must have the right to defend the truth as they see it; to worship God as they see fit; to live as they wish to live, so long as they do not interfere with the rights of others.
    ... "No man should have an advantage over his fellow-men through contorl of a natural resource. Every man is entitled to protection from the products his own efforts, but not for the products which belong to all of us.
    ... "The government should take the revenue from products of natural resources to pay the costs of government and distribute the residue among all of us. This would remove tax burdens, revive business and industry, decrease prices and put idle men to work.
    ... "What folly it is to talk of regulating monopoly, when we grant to an individual, or a few individuals, control of the natural resources with which God has so richly endowed our country. Monopoly of that kind cannot be regulated. The only cure is to abolish it."
