https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geolibertarianism "case of geoanarchism, the most radically decentralized and scrupulously voluntarist form of geolibertarianism, Foldvary theorizes that ground rents would be collected by private agencies and persons would have the opportunity to secede from associated geocommunities—thereby opting out of their protective and legal services—if desired"

Why do you need to be in a community to acquire services? Just pay the person providing the service directly

Isn’t this literally “you didn’t build that”?

I'd argue it's still immoral, but likely to be to have less negative impact on economic incentives than other forms of taxation.

Also it has less potential to be abused as a means of controlling/directing people.

In the agrarian era where almost all wealth was proportional to the land holdings, land taxes had a point. But in the modern industrial and information age era, all it's going to do is make US farms noncompetitive on the global market place, and cause us to have ultra expensive food, while not really fixing anything.

I think in current times, rent and housing are so expensive, that land taxes seem attractive. But the thing is, that is because we have a federal reserve banking cartel creating real estate bubbles, that price normal people out of the marketplace, encouraging people to over-zone real estate to maximize asset values. Land taxes will do nothing to fix that problem, ending the fed and zoning laws will.

The idea tax is no tax at all, but if you must have a tax, the optimal would be to at least let people create the wealth and save it, before you steal it when they use it. Things like end use sales tax tend to attack end use consumption, while things like income taxes tends to attack the production side of the economy and attack wealth creation.
