Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorDavid Giesen
Come hear notorious walking tour guide David Giesen once again bring the heat to Valencia. Building on his "15 column inches of fame" in the November issue of San Francisco magazine (see the link below), Giesen goes guided missile on landlordism in this edition of his "conversation with the street" (what others call his "calle and response" style of political action).

In this episode, Giesen challenges evictees, liberals, do-gooders, progressives, Bernie-supporters and professed Anti-fas to stand in alliance with those who despise, abhor, and otherwise abjure Big Government. The regulatory-happy, intrusive aspects of Big Government which disgust Tea Party type folk is born out of Big Government's endorsement of and protection of landlordism. By first taking away the universal individual right to use land upon equal terms with the rest of humanity, Big Government results from the ensuing need for regulations and charity and dependency programs to compensate for the wealth lost by renters to landlords in exchange for access to place/land/location.

Humanity has been oppressed by those social mores and laws which require individuals to pay land rent to private landlords. Americans who pay land rent to private interests are deprived of their individual natural right to use nature without Big Government's protection of the distortionary, extortionary practice of kingly control of land value. Where the people as a whole are portrayed as sovereign, land rent belongs to the people as a whole, not to interloping sovereign would-bes.

Indeed, it is land rent, paid by all occupants of the land, that properly funds the social programs of a nation or people. And, needless to say, this revenue ought to be allocated fairly, meaning in a fashion tantamount to democratic republicanism.

Come discuss how San Francisco's rent-racked, displaced, evicted, time-strapped citizenry find common cause with Tea Party-type folk whose individual right to use this earth upon equal terms with others has been abrogated by the Big Government promoted private commandeering of land values.
