"We hold these truths to be self-evident . . . that [everyone has] certain unalienable rights, that among these [is] life . . . ."

As a foundational manifesto the American Declaration of Independence, in its opening statement of general principles, is (to put it lightly) mighty fine.

Come along on a walking tour that unpacks the unalienable right to life as nothing less than the right to use place/geography upon equal economic terms with all other human beings. That means no human being has the right to gain economic advantage over others simply on the basis of ability to exclude others from geography. In other words, the value of place has no business being privatized.

The price of land in real estate. The ability to privatize the value of land with respect to immigrants. The funding of public infrastructure through land values. The emasculation of racism when the racist is deprived of economic control of land.

This and much more is provocatively set before the mind and heart of those who come along on a walking tour surveying San Francisco Social Movement History.
