Keller-Williams, the real estate outfit, sponsors workshops that identify and spell out how to become a landlord in the rotten-heinie ol' south tradition of the slave plantation. Now let's get this right, Keller-Williams merely rides the coat-tails we--you and I--provide so long as we wrap ourselves in the mantle of private property in land values.
Still, it's arresting to read in the Keller book on wealth accumulation (distributed gratis at the Keller-Williams workshop I infiltrated) that unearned income will set you free. Yes, set you free the same way unearned income accumulated by holding people against their will on particular land set slave masters free.
Come along on a FREE walking tour surveying San Francisco social movement history that builds the case for perceiving the privatization of the economic value of land/the earth as tantamount to slavery. If you doubt this, consider that the high land values of the San Francisco Bay Region, privatized, account for most of the transfer of a huge amount of produced labor and business value to the mere owner of land!
What's your land rent? Multiply that times 90% of the Bay Region population. Sabe?
