Ack-Act Theater nails the crux of the current (and all other) recessions by hammering the norm that Mother Earth/ urban land is properly private property. "Instant Run-off" juxtaposes rain run-off's opportunity cost --rain water could be allowed to seep into the water table-- and instant run-off voting --which arguably leads radical thinking to go underground as political candidates seek temperate voters' second and third place votes-- with the running off of community-generated land values.
Why not socialize land values? Instead of letting them disappear into private pockets?
If Occupy XXX means anything, it must mean the community occupies land rents. Or is occupy an abstraction?
Intermittent 15 minute performances of "Instant Run-off" from Noon to three pm. Absolutely gratis to passers-by.
