"The advantage Georgism could have (though this remains to be seen) is that because of its broad, catch-all appeal, there isn’t necessarily a certain type of person who becomes a Georgist."
This is true of most ideologies, Georgism just doesn't have a stereotype because it's not big enough to be on people's radar. If it became a widely known movement a mean caricature of its supporters would be drawn up pretty quick.
As a libertarian I recognize that even a very limited government needs some source of funding, and Milton Friedman famously called the Land Value Tax the “least bad tax”.
My pragmatic argument for libertarianism is based on “first, do no harm”. Before creating new government agencies and spending billions and trillions to “solve” a problem, let’s first peel back existing policies that, you will often find, have either created the problem or made it a lot worse. There’s a lot of low hanging fruit in that regard – including in the area of health care.
