For those hungering for a plan, a scheme, a scenario, an idea that could draw together the centrifugal factional interests of the left [see Doonesbury for 7/21/19: https://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/2019/07/21] to form a concentrated, transformative movement, make time this Saturday morning to come on a free weekly walking tour that serves up a candidate plan for the task.
The Commons SF proposes, in the course of a tour of San Francisco social movement history, that treating planet Earth as a commonwealth can very well operate as a unifying principle for environmentalists, Labor advocates, socialist dreamers, poverty-busters, gender and race identity politics activists, and other niche lefties.
The walk builds upon the hypothesis that all oppressed and marginalized people seek "security in geography" (safety and stability in location) to argue for consensus that the privatization of of the economic value of "location, location, location" disrupts class solidarity, environmental integrity (and responsibility), and the conceptualization of universal equality of humanity. Further, and positively, specific public policy is proposed.
Advisory: this walk is heavy on details, eschewing vague generalities, and is therefore provocative and unnerving for those owning real estate.
Note: this walk will be offered to Libertarians, anti-Big government rhetoricians, Free Market haranguers, Republicans, and others next week. Treating land as a common wealth is a unifying principle for all people.
