Welcome to the Association for Good Government
Where those Seeking Social Justice, Individual Liberty, Economic Efficiency & Sustainable Development Converge
THERE'S NO GOVERNMENT LIKE GOOD GOVERNMENT
We believe that we owe our existence and survival to our rights to exist as human beings, that our duties in society begin with the respect for such rights of others as if they were our very own and that, essentially and primarily, government exists to uphold such rights and duties in equality.
Thus, the Association believes that the growing problems we are experiencing in society can be combated far more effectively by securing our natural rights than by government intervention and authoritarian controls.
Though not immediately visible, the natural right we need most is the right to land and the bounties of nature. Without it, we cannot begin to exercise our right to work, relish and secure the fruits of our labour, or achieve a dignified human existence.
Cooperation makes possible a level of prosperity beyond separate individual efforts to overcome conditions of scarcity; it is through social justice wherein equality in rights guides us to render to the individuals what is due to their efforts and to society what is due to society's cooperation. By upholding these principles, individual liberties are enhanced to unleash creativity and achieve our vast human potential. The synergy generated by such cooperation generates abundance universally and sustainably.
This is the essential and fundamental teaching of Henry George, an American economist and social philosopher whose ideas and principles the Association propagates through courses, seminars, submissions, articles and its bi-monthly magazine Good Government.

The great work of the present for every man, and every organization of men, who would improve social conditions, is the work of education — the propagation of ideas. It is only as it aids this that anything else can avail. And in this work every one who can think may aid — first by forming clear ideas himself, and then by endeavoring to arouse the thought of those with whom he comes in contact.
