Reader comments about this quote:
An astute observation in the obvious.
 -- Mike, Norwalk     
    All wealth is the product of agricultural labor. This being the wealth of the individual and a nation. To be more specific. Concerning Physiocracy and the Government of Nature. The Agrarianism practiced by our Founding Fathers. How to restore our traditional rural society, cuts against the grain of wage slavery practiced so well today by industrialist. All industrial and non-agricultural labor is unproductive appendages to agricultural labor. That really shots society in the foot right know doesn't it !

    That's what gives property its value  the time and effort required to get/make it.  Which is why an honest money system is integral.  If someone can just print up money, he can buy the world.  Those that cry about the wealthy should make the distinction between those that have earned their wealth and those that have appropriated wealth  i.e. LABOR  of others.
