No blogging to speak of this week; I’m attending the annual conference of the Council of Georgist Organizations at Scranton.
I’m not going to try blogging the conference, titled “Two Views of Social Justice: A Catholic/Georgist Dialogue.” Probably the most striking thing I’ve learned today: Theologian Brian Benestad said that Catholic doctrine neither requires nor prohibits the single tax. If the laity thinks the single tax is a good thing, let them put it into effect. However, he said the single tax cannot solve all the problems of poverty and human misery, because those are caused by Original Sin, and the single tax cannot overcome Original Sin.
Can’t reply to that one.
