Oh really? No, O'Reilley.
What a difference there can be in the meaning of the near enough same sounds. Freedom fighters everywhere and housing advocates everywhere sound off about land and liberty, but what do most of you think of when you think of "land for the people?"
Probably not socializing land values. Probably not using the marketplace to determine land values in order to identify how much rent the owner of land should be paying into the public treasury. But Paddy loves the horizontal, not the vertical. Go for equality, not for stratification.
Come along on a walking tour disguised as a survey of San Francisco social movement history that is, in fact, a short course in why and how to socialize land values while maintaining private property title in land.
On St. Patrick's Day the walk will put front and central the efforts of Kate Kennedy, 19th century SF school teacher, to teach "restoration of the land to the people." In 1873 she set the legal precedent for equal pay for women. In 1886 she was Califoria's first female candidate for public office (Superintendent of Public Education), and in 1890 she established civil service tenure law in California. Meanwhile, she preached land reform across the city.
Come along on this tour, then step a few blocks over to Market St. for the parade.
FREE, but your opinion of Davitt, Parnell, O'Connell may sink a little when you learn about the likes of Kennedy. Why were all those men so timid?
