There's been something missing from the discussions and events we've attended addressing social justice, and notably absent from the Occupy/resist foreclosure events we've attended, and that something is a philosophical and cultural norm conversation regarding justice.

Come to an evening The Commons SF is hosting that takes up this conversation. A 36 minute film, Real Estate for Sale, followed by a five minute piece of political street theater will lead into a conversation titled, "Securing natural (land) opportunity is the basis of social justice."

Rigorous regulation of the banking industry is needed. An emphasis on meeting human needs, not corporate bottom lines is essential. Deconstructing many instances of centralized planning and control fosters democracy and provides real-time political issues feedback. But these remain causes of balkanized social interests in the absence of a cultural normative regarding essential principles.

If you're willing to consider that equality of access to the material universe--to the earth, air and water that no human made--is the fundamental, irreducible basis of justice, then we'd like to see you at this evening, titled "Restore the Frontier."

We'll pay you $5 to attend. If you like what you see and hear, we'll pay you $10/ hour to take up to 10 hours of our social justice philosophy training.

Be on time.
