Edmund Burke

The Henry George Foundation of Great Britain
is pleased to extend an invitation to a meeting to consider






Both Edmund Burke and Henry George had a profound respect for what they understood to be Natural Law· but were they respecting and honoring the same thing? Likewise both Burke and George respected private property and regarded it as critical to the welfare of society. but were they championing the same thing? Again Burke and George were both concerned for the welfare of those who suffered from the effects of land enclosure and the industrial revolution – but were their responses compatible? So would Burke, had he known of George’s ideas concerning the natural source of public revenue have been supportive? and if not what would have been his reservations? Ian Alston a long time admirer of both men will open up these questions for discussion during his talk which should provide material for an instl1lctive, stimulating, and enjoyable afternoon,
