Geolibertarianism is an intersection of libertarianism and geoism. It holds that individuals have an equal right of access to economic land in kind or compensation.

Where are split-rate friendly US states?

What states, other than Pennsylvania, is it legal to do split-rate property tax? It seems some states have problems due to anti-Georgist language embedded in state constitutions.

Protecting Second Amendment Rights: Defending Individual Liberty and Self-Defense

The Founding Fathers recognized the necessity of the Second Amendment when drafting the Bill of Rights. It was established to ensure that citizens could protect themselves, their property, and their families from both individual threats and potential government overreach. The right to bear arms empowers citizens to assert their autonomy and preserve their individual liberty, allowing for a balance of power between the government and the people.

...

The Second Amendment is deeply rooted in the concept of self-defense. It ensures that law-abiding Americans have the means to protect themselves in times of imminent danger. By having access to firearms, individuals are better equipped to ward off potential threats, creating a sense of security and empowerment.

...

Throughout history, oppressive regimes have disarmed their citizens as a means to control and suppress dissent. The Second Amendment acts as a safeguard against such threats, empowering citizens to resist potential tyranny.

...

Striking a balance between protecting individual rights and implementing responsible measures is crucial. By focusing on measures that address mental health concerns, strengthen background checks, and promote education and training, we can work towards a well-regulated system that respects both individual rights and collective well-being.

The first steps towards the night-watchman state

If you are a classic liberal or minarchist you might have noticed your government has not been responsible with money and is probably in debt as well. So in order to fight it you propose decreasing the state's size in order to never repeat it again. But there is a problem. Just like you cannot go from looking like Nikocado avocado to looking giga chad overnight, you cannot go from whatever your state is to a Misesian nightwatchman state overnight. You gotta go there gradually and here are some first steps.

Fair warning, expect a permanent ban in r/libertarian for talking about the LVT.

When questioned they gave me some CYA comment about me breaking their rules of civil discourse (no clue what this is in regards to though) and then "Furthermore we do not owe you a platform for spreading Anti-libertarian ideologies such as socialism/communism."

It's sad, I was subbed there for a lot of years and it's a great place for teaching libertarian curious people what libertarianism is, in fact that's where I myself first learned about Henry George and his interesting ideas. I'd never so much as gotten a warning in all my years there, but such is life.

I'm not really sure which flavor of libertarianism the mods are now interested in pushing there, but it isn't ours.

What caused Single-Tax Colonies to fail?

I've looked into the history of the single-tax movement in preparation for an upcoming related lecture. Yet, I still haven't really found a common problem all of them faced that prevented expansion. Is there a book or paper that better describes why single-tax colonies faltered?

Yes or no?

Do you guys believe in basically Minarchism (minimal state: police, emergency services, military, justice system) financed through LVT and maybe Pigouvian taxes under the system of laissez faire capitalism?

Question: What is the difference between Left-Georgists, Right-Georgists and GeoLibertarianists?

Gidday!

Quick question to the GeoLibertarian Community.

What is the difference between 'Left-wing Georgism', 'Right-wing Georgism' and 'GeoLibertarianism'?

At the risk of sounding rather arrogant, isn't 'Georgism' centrist?

This Guy

After I said that property taxes only on land have the least economic distortions of any of the major tax proposals.

Property taxes are one of the biggest impediments to the market. Period. Increased property taxes artificially raise the cost of living which raises the cost to rent which raises the cost of business startup which distorts prices and wages. Income taxes do NONE of those things. An income tax would probably only impact in-migration rates from other states. A sales tax would be stupid because it would destroy the uniqueness of NH’s tourist industry and take away our advertisement advantages.

Former Anarcho Socialist here, can someone give me a 101 on GeoLib?

So I’ve found myself moving more towards Lib Centre ideologies and this is one on my radar, however I’m struggling to understand the basics. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a straightforward 101 of GeoLib theory?

I’m curious on privatisation and land distribution, as well as the way tax would work. Im big on public healthcare and infrastructure but think people should be able to own their own land for their own purposes and I support free speech and trade with some restrictions to stop things getting too out of hand (monopolies mainly)

Sorry if I’m completely off but I’m interested in the ins and outs so if anyone could give me some constructive guidance I’d appreciate it!

How would operating under LVT effect Trump’s tax dodging strategy?

This would be a good topic for a press release….Could he have done what he did if LVT were in place in NYC, and elsewhere? What would have been different? How would community control of property evaluation effect the scenario? Am I the only one who sees the PR possibilities of this?

“Rent” ?

I am curious as to what constitutes “rent.” In neoclassical economics, economic rent is the part of price attributable to the inelasticity in supply. Nevertheless in classical economics (where Henry George was “the last classical economist”) rent is “income” from natural resources in fixed supply.

So which type of “rent” are georgists and geolibertarians against the privatization of?

Do we want a 100% LVT (for the first definition of “rent”) or whatever other percentage is equivalent to landlord income (for the second definition of “rent”)?
