At any given time, as we have stressed, there is a limited amount of capital—a limited supply of all resources—that can be devoted to investment. 72 The very term “public utility,” furthermore, is an absurd one. ” Any designation of a few industries as “public utilities” is completely arbitrary and unjustified. 71 Many advocates of eminent domain contend that “society,” in the last analysis, has the right to use any land for “its” purposes. Without knowing it, they have thus conceded the validity of a major Henry Georgist plank: that every person, by virtue of his birth, has a right to his aliquot share of God-given land.

This is the essence of the Society-of- Status. The reversion to status law in the antitrust legislation went unnoticed . . the politicians . . had secured a law under which it was impossible for the citizen to know beforehand what constituted a crime, and which therefore made all productive effort liable to prosecution if not to certain conviction. 46 An individual becoming idle instead of working may be said to “restrain” trade, although he is simply not engaging in it rather than “restraining” it.
