There's a play playing ACT's Geary Theatre that's well worth seeing. It portrays the passion (as in The Crucifixion) of working class folk--that's uh, you and me--crucified by the greed impulse of make money-ism. The performances and technical aspects of the production immerse the audience in the complex divisive agendas and modes of corrosion perpetrated by humanity upon itself. The name of the play is Sweat. Regrettably, it doesn't sweat the details.

There's something missing. After all, the Passion of Christ is a harrowing if comforting metaphor for what so many endure, but the barely imaginable theme of wholesale forgiveness which is, at bottom, the Christian story, does too little justice to, well, the justice-seeking theme of the Hebrew Bible.

Come along on a walking tour that takes a hard, secular look at the other source history for aspirations for radical republican democracy, namely the land wealth redistribution saga of the Hebrews.

The walk is free. The message, after surveying half a dozen San Francisco social movements, is this: the land values of San Francisco should be socialized.
