The protection of the masses has in all times been the pretense of tyranny - the plea of monarchy, of aristocracy, of special privilege of every kind. The slave owners justified slavery as protecting the slaves  (Henry George Quotes) The methods by which a trade union can alone act, are necessarily destructive; its organization is necessarily tyrannical  (Henry George Quotes) Private ownership of land is the nether mill-stone. Material progress is the upper mill-stone. Between them, with an increasing pressure, the working classes are being ground  (Henry George Quotes) There is danger in reckless change, but greater danger in blind conservatism  (Henry George Quotes) Everybody works but the vacant lot  (Henry George Quotes) That alone is wise which is just; that alone is enduring which is right  (Henry George Quotes) Charity is false, futile, and poisonous when offered as a substitute for justice  (Henry George Quotes) The people must think because the people alone can act  (Henry George Quotes) Abolish all taxation save that upon land values  (Henry George Quotes) Progressive societies outgrow institutions as children outgrow clothes  (Henry George Quotes) Poorly paid labor is inefficient labor, the world over  (Henry George Quotes) How many men are there who fairly earn a million dollars?  (Henry George Quotes) The fundamental principle of human action, the law, that is to political economy what the law of gravitation is to physics is that men seek to gratify their desires with the least exertion  (Henry George Quotes) Passing into higher forms of desire, that which slumbered in the plant, and fitfully stirred in the beast, awakes in the man  (Henry George Quotes) Discovery can give no right of ownership, for whatever is discovered must have been already here to be discovered. If a man makes a wheelbarrow, or a book, or a picture, he has a moral right to that particular wheelbarrow, or book, or picture, but no right to ask that others be prevented from making similar things. Such a prohibition, though given for the purpose of stimulating discovery and invention, really in the long run operates as a check upon them  (Henry George Quotes) The value of a thing is the amount of laboring or work that its possession will save the possessor  (Henry George Quotes) There can be to the ownership of anything no rightful title which is not derived from the title of the producer and does not rest upon the natural right of the man to himself  (Henry George Quotes) I propose to beg no question to shrink from no conclusion, but to follow truth wherever it may lead  (Henry George Quotes) It is but a truism that labor is most productive where its wages are largest. Poorly paid labor is inefficient labor, the world over  (Henry George Quotes) For as labor cannot produce without the use of land, the denial of the equal right to the use of land is necessarily the denial of the labor to its own produce  (Henry George Quotes) The ideal social state is not that in which each gets an equal amount of wealth, but in which each gets in proportion to his contribution to the general stock  (Henry George Quotes) Unless there be correct thought, there cannot be any action, and when there is correct thought, right action will follow  (Henry George Quotes) One sex of voice in public matters, and that we could in no way so increase the attention, the intelligence and the devotion which may be brought to the solution of social problems as by enfranchising our women  (Henry George Quotes) If you would have the slave show the virtues of the freeman, you must first make him free  (Henry George Quotes) It is not from top to bottom that societies die; it is from bottom to top  (Henry George Quotes) The state, it cannot too often be repeated, does nothing, and can give nothing, which it does not take from somebody  (Henry George Quotes) The word capital, as philologists trace it, comes down to us from a time when wealth was estimated in cattle, and a man’s income depended upon the number of head he could keep for their increase  (Henry George Quotes) What protectionism teaches us, is to do to ourselves in time of peace what enemies seek to do to us in time of war  (Henry George Quotes) Whence shall come the new barbarians? Go through the squalid quarters of great cities, and you may see, even now, their gathering hordes! How shall learning perish? Men will cease to read, and books will kindle fires and be turned into cartridges  (Henry George Quotes) The march of invention has clothed mankind with powers of which a century ago the boldest imagination could not have dreamt  (Henry George Quotes)
