Geoism and The Progress Report
|January 9, 2007||Posted by Staff under Progress Report, The Progress Report|
What is geoism?
Geoism is a pretty simple idea. You — and everyone else in the world — should get to keep 100% of what you earn, “the fruits of your labor.”
But then how does government get any revenue if it can’t take people’s earnings? By taking UNearned values, that’s how. Unearned value, such as monopoly value, should be collected by government as its revenue source.
Geoism is pretty simple, but it has a lot of implications, and most people like to study those for a while before they decide whether geoism is a great idea. For instance, one implication of geoism is a total end to corporate welfare, both within a country and internationally (as operated by the IMF, which should be closed).
Keep visiting The Progress Report and you will get a taste of what geoism is all about.
The Progress Report also stands in favor of democracy. Therefore we favor proportional representation, and fully informed juries.
The Progress Report also stands against all killing. Therefore we oppose the death penalty.
