His novel The Brothers Karamazov postulates that all men should be monks; that everyone is responsible for everyone else; and that belief in God can only be found through the practice of active love.
This is a joke. There's nothing anarchist about men being monks (where you're ruled by an abbot), nothing anti-statist about responsibility for all peoples (which is what a super-state aims for) nor belief in God thorough acts of love.
On the contrary, if anyone bothers to actually read Brothers K they'd know what a mess everyone is without a strong & virtuous Father figure; the only good character, Alexy, had a Father-ruler character in the form of Father Zossima.22.214.171.124 (talk) 05:12, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Tolstoy wrote in The slavery of out Time (chap XI): "Those who, like Henry George and his partisans, would abolish the laws making private property of land, propose new laws imposing an obligatory rent on the land. And this obligatory land- rent will necessarily create a new form of slavery, because a man compelled to pay rent, or the single tax, may at any failure of the crops or other misfortune have to borrow money from a man who has some to lend, and he will again lapse into slavery." He praised George ideas in three letters, - for his system may do away with the first of the three causes driving people into slavery - but he was not a "Georgist". Moreover, "anarchist version of Georgism" means absolutely nothing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 05:26, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
