Come along on a walking tour surveying social movement history in San Francisco, and excavating the role "the search for security in geography" plays in galvanizing social movements.
Identity politics is a point in case. Oppressed segments of society often self-constitute ghettos or enclaves in search of security. For instance, the LGBTQ community gathered in San Francisco and the Bay Region precisely to achieve freedom in social standing. Of course, some historically oppressed identities such as women in patriarchal society cannot resort to broader geographic security, but must form domestic patterns of haven.
Come along on a walking tour which proposes that socializing control of the economic value of land is key to enfranchising oppressed identities, and that indeed, the end of the private ownership of land value is fundamental to making society whole.
