In Quest of Justice
by Francis Neilson

A hymn to Henry George that shows that Yahweh and Jesus were Georgists. The book never makes it clear what the Georgist idea of justice is, except that it has to do with owning, or not owning land. One minute he seems to say that land should be owned by the community, and the next minute that it should be in private hands. Parts of the book are anarchistic, other parts advocate land taxation by the central government as the panacea.

Georgism is a religious movement. It has elements of Christianity and spiritualism to it that I was unaware of. This book has aroused by curiosity about Henry George.

Year Read: 1976
