Martin Luther King meets Alfred North Whitehead
the praxis of Realist social philosophy
If you could prune half of capitalist demagoguery, leaving the other half for 2050's young socialists to whittle at, would you take the job? Land rent communist David Giesen speaks this morning about the plausibility of engaging 40% of the US population in a conversation about disengaging land values from private ownership. With a modest dollop of historical review (1776-yesterday) of land speculation in America, a sliced banana's worth of "their own scripture's injunction" theological talking points for the faith community, and a heaping helping of predictable results economic logic challenge for Republicans and Tea Party folk, Giesen will serve up a credible conversational dessert that Marxists can offer the other 99% of the population. And if 40% bite, a big hunk of capitalism is going down, baby!
