Event Type Teach-In
Organizer/AuthorDavid Giesen
Who knew that in 1909 the ruling Liberal Party in the UK ran a budget and program more adventurous than what Bernie Sanders has put up? The House of Lords squashed it in desperation, harrowed by the land value taxes proposed. It's not far-fetched to substitute Donald Trump for the House of Lords and discover the timely truths young Churchill eloquently advanced a century gone by.

You're invited to a talk on the above subject by democratic institutions scholar, Arnold Swenkeest, at the downtown American Youth Hostel.

The talk follows a San Francisco social movements walking tour, closely related in subject to the talk, beginning (and ending) at the Youth Hostel. The walk leaves at 9 am and is fee free.
