If Spike Lee's BlackkKlansman would have you do more than order a second round of nosh and slurp at the Alamo Drafthouse, and if 40 acres (and a mule) means more to you than a nice refrain, and if Reparations as a one-time-payout-settles-the-score makes you smirk, then consider coming on a walking tour putatively a survey of SF social movements, but in reality a robust introduction to the most radical idea in social justice possibility, namely socializing the full potential rent of land.
While tracing the theme of "struggle for security in geography" in such valiant efforts as exerted by the Black Panthers, the hegira Mormons, the '60s Diggers,and the Occupy movement, this walk digs into the public policy of real estate to reveal the ultimate upset of domination economics: eliminating private gain for merely owning pieces of the earth.
If you're prepared to break through binary (Capital vs Labor)thinking into trinitarian (Land vs. Capital and Labor) dynamics, make time for two and half hours that Ralph Nader, Joseph Stiglitz and Tyler Cowen endorse.
