If there's going to be taxes, What kind are the least destructive? Henry George's ideas?

http://www.econlib.org/library/Enc/bios/George.html

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georgism

Milton Friedman agreed with "the Henry George argument" as being "the least bad" means of raising whatever public revenue was needed.
Austrian economist Friedrich Hayek credited early enthusiasm for Henry George with developing his interest in economics. Later, Hayek said that the theory of Georgism would be very strong if assessment challenges didn't lead to unfair outcomes, but he believed that they would.

What are your ideas on the subject????
Please speak up.

A pollution tax would be least bad.  Followed by fees on the last government monopolies, like roads and ultimately contact enforcement.  But eventually all would become unnecessary.
