The public policy legacy of those cultures born of the freedom story which inspired Martin Luther King is rich with the moral conviction that humanity needs little if any charity when it experiences justice.

The Bible story of freedom in the land is not supernatural. It is codified in the etymology of the word "Jubilee," and manifest in the 1865 Black American demand for 40 acres (and a mule) by which to apply labor to the earth and effect a livelihood independent of obligation or indebtedness to others.

Come along on a walking tour of San Francisco social movement history which explores that freedom story, archly pertinent this MLK weekend. Think how much obligation and indebtedness attached to land there is in San Francisco where a family's two bedroom home sits on land commanding $3,000 a month! $36,000 a year for the land! 25% of a $140,000 salary! That's share-cropping the way the freedom story protests.

How is it that the vanguard of You-name-it social justice advocacy can muster little more fire than the moral passivity of a pastured cow in claiming the earth as a birthright?

Come on this walk to rekindle the meme of memes, the purpose of purposes, the MLK of MLKs in addressing the social problem distilled to this: Upon what terms of obligation to another will one human being gain access to the land of San Francisco?
