Could I just say that I am getting very tired of postings that try to "sell"
some complete solution to the world's problems, whether Georgism, TFE,
prayer five times a day, or whatever.
I believe we would get very much further ahead if we isolated the different
factors in our present economic system that need to be corrected - the debt
money system; the monopolization of land; the need for a guaranteed basic
income for all etc. etc.
I find that when I am simply asked to subscribe to a "label" of whatever
kind, my mind shuts off.
