Come along on a walking tour that makes conventional socialists abjure . . . ditto with libertarians.
The class divide, at bottom, concerns who controls geography. Owning buildings in San Francisco doesn't displace people, but owning the land under those buildings does. Businesses , including, big, fat greasy ones, don't impose wage slavery, but those who exact rent for access to desirable locations do.
A factory or tractor or office building never supplanted workers, but without land that factory, that tractor, that office building is non-operative; it's the land owner who supplanted workers. The factory, the tractor, the office building pays rent to the land owner. The class divide begins with the division of land owners and everyone else.
Come along on the one walking tour that can upset your ideology, restore your environmentalism, obliterate your Euro-gaga socialism, intimate God, and astonish you with the proximity of the insight that accomplishes all that.
It's a free walking tour of San Francisco social movement history that will make an earth-worker . . . a [henry] geo-ergist of you. Lunch follows . . . on the house. It's not a free lunch, though, because you have to come on the walk, see?
