Leon Phat, San Francisco's Far Out but still Classic candidate for Supervisor throws pitches harder than Line-out Linceum. And he's hosting his toughest jaw yet this Saturday morning on a walking tour through the heart of historic downtown. Come along. It's free. And transformative.
No other candidate has identified planet earth as the sufficient and robust home for everyone in community. The elephant at Ocean Beach, tipping San Francisco into a metaphorical sea of riptides, is the failure to distinguish community-generated land values as the starting point for a creating a healthy social structure. Land has measurable economic value for one reason only: the growth of community. In an odd twist of disturbing-the-bilious-left's-settled-analysis fate, it turns out that hewing to the conservative position that "creation confers ownership" is the ticket to all the social justice they could ever want.
Community creates land values, ergo land values belong to community.
But how much of that truth do you get from the left? Not much. Instead, the shades of Chris Daly and the silent sound alikes of Aaron Peskin fit and start about the evils of free enterprise and the dangers of open markets in things made by people, while letting most of nature-created land's value slip into kingly pockets. Make no mistake, on the other side the Micheala Alioto ditto-heads have nothing more in mind for the greater population than crumbs from the 2nd District's table, which collects its land value rents on the way to its banks.
Pack it in with the pachyderm, or stomp the morning fantastic with Leon this Saturday, 9-Noon?
