"Agorism" (You'll start hearing a lot more about this philosophy as things get worse)

• WIKI
Agorists are propertarian market anarchists who consider property rights to be natural rights deriving from the primary right of self-ownership. Thus, together with agorism's advocacy of using counter-economics and private defense to defeat the state, agorism can be considered a type of anarcho-capitalism that has a revolutionary streak.[5] Agorists consider their ideas to be an evolution and superlation of those of Murray Rothbard. Konkin describes agorists as "strict Rothbardians... and even more Rothbardian than Rothbard [himself]."[6]

Lotekjunky, Samuel Konkin never wrote anything regarding agorism requiring any Georgist land tax systems.

Here is a link to read the New Libertarian Manifesto, where Konkin first outlined his philosophy. That should give you a better understanding of agorism.

Can someone help me out here. I'm getting confused. Agorists view property rights as stemming from the natural right of owning yourself. I dig that. After doing some reading, I see stuff about land use taxes and not being able to own land. It sounds Georgist to me. What am I missing?

Better information may be found at http://agorism.info

There is also a "counter-economics" content category on Freedom Phoenix, although it is inaccessible (bug report made).
