Attend this seminar if you're interested in understanding the cultural beliefs underlying America's wealth divide, and want to repair that split.

Those who control the economic value of geography are, theologically or psychologically speaking, gods. They control who accesses place, and upon what terms.

Conceptually, real estate is what theologians mean by Creation. Practically speaking, private ownership of land values amounts to power over others.

The real estate fiasco that is San Francisco is only comprehensible--and fixable-- when the theological implications of real estate are grasped. This free 30 minute seminar is open on a drop-in basis at any point during the hour and a half time span of the program.

Participants will 1) glimpse the magnitude of the "wool" blanket pulled over society's eyes by the real estate industry, 2) end their aversion to speaking in theological terms about the belief systems of nations, 3) gain independence from the knee-jerk formulas of left-wing and right-wing political thinking, 4) see a way forward for resolving the wealth divide.
