I'll check these blogs out. of course, I've been writing Georgist articles for Op Ed News (a top 100 blog with 350,000-800,000 visitors a month, sadly not all to my articles :) ) for some time. We've now done a comic book with lots of easy to digest facts and citations too. One of the next projects for CG is a <10minute movie in the style of The Story of Stuff (which went super-viral to thousands of schools and on the net). I hope to start the screenplay by fall. Stay tuned.
We need to think not only outside the box, but start building new boxes. Internal debate is fine, up to a point, but it won't change the world. I don't claim to know what will, but I know we have to do something different.
Jeff - isn't the Progress Report a non-left, purely geoist blog already? Yes, a non-left geoist movie is possible. Start appealing to the entrepreneurs and middle class by promising to lower their taxes on production, and you've got the libertarians.
