      To be fair, a few times, Harry fell back on something like ~rents will be figured out like they are now.~ Of course, that method doesn't tell us much -- since in cases where rents are voluntary there is no reason to think people would opt for the same when they become involuntary (unless Harry says a Georgist community would not forcibly collect rent) or where they are involuntary there is no reason to think they are just.
