Did You Know That Your Taxes Crystallize As Land Value And Are Stolen From You By The Rich?

Taxes that the government spends on infrastructure and services crystallizes in nearby land as land value. See ‘Henry George Theorem’ and ‘Ricardo’s Law of Rent’. People that own that land are privileged to profit from this publicly created value. They get money for charging others for access to infrastructure and services they don’t provide. They didn’t provide the land either, it was already there. In essence, they pocket other people’s taxes.
How about we tax the full value of land instead of taxing income, sales, etc. That way people pay for the benefits they receive from society, since the benefits one receives from society crystallize as land value. Everybody except for the rent seeking rich would benefit. You wouldn’t have to pay taxes twice anymore like you do now: once to the government and once to the land owner who charges you for accessing benefits you already paid for.
Taxes on land value can’t be passed down onto anyone either since the supply of land is fixed.

    Just follow this simple philosophy and you won’t go far wrong.
    The Rich get Richer by keeping the Poor, Poor.
    The trick is convince enough of the masses that if they work hard and pay their taxes then they too have a chance to join the top table.
    See… simple really.
