9. the reason for the public works idea

 

Property taxes are not going away anytime soon.

If there was a way to trade labor for tax debt, groups of people could use their remaining "old capital" to get the startup land required for creation of the community. If the public-works system was in place, they could be assured that the state would not come in and take the land for unpaid taxes. It could be a self sustaining non-dollar-capital system fully existing in the capitalist state.
