AS things are at present, the more we struggle the tighter do our bonds become. We crowd together because of the high price of land; and the more we overcrowd the higher becomes the price of land, and it grows more and more difficult to obtain further room. We buy up slums and the price of land rises still higher, and more slums are formed. We make railways and tramways to the suburbs, and rents rise all along the route, and at the further terminus the conditions of the centre are reproduced. We work and work and pile up wealth, and when we stretch out our hands to take what we have earned we cannot touch it—it has turned into land values. It is a case of “Water, water everywhere, and not a drop to drink.”
