You call me a socialist. I suppose you’ll have to admit that I’m rather a peculiar one! I have been a Georgist for more than 50 years. I support a completely free price-mechanism controlled market. I am a free trader and would like nothing better than to have the US drop all tariffs, quotas, anti-dumping duties the first thing tomorrow morning. I want minimum government and an end to privilege. Privilege to a Georgist is “privi lege” or private law. That is, a law designed to take from one to give to another. This major Georgist theme — the ending of privilege — unites people across the political spectrum. Privilege is the opposite of justice and the phrase “liberty and justice for all” requires the ending of privilege.
