The up-to-the-last-minute of life cultural norm of requiring private debt to access life, possible only through access to land, amounts to late-term economic abortion. There is an antidote.

In this one hour free interactive seminar you'll be introduced to the distinction "that equality of access to the socio-economic value of land is a prerequisite to economic life." And you'll also be made privy to one (among possibly many possible solutions) public policy proposal that ensures equality of economic life.

Here's the puzzle. Given that each of us must have access to the Earth in order to have life, it then follows that differing degrees of possession of land in all its social and economic dimensions confers differing degrees of humanity. To make this plain consider this. If one person (man, woman, or legal entity) can bar access to location except upon receipt of an access fee (land rent), then the payer of that fee has lower standing as a natural inhabitant of planet Earth than the recipient of that fee. That fee (economic rent) is not a charge for the improvements made to and upon the land, it is a fee for the planet Earth location of those improvements.

Such a fee amounts to an abortion or partial severance of economic life. This would seem to be a gruesome metaphor . . . except poverty and its attendant despair are not metaphors.

At minimum you'll walk away from this seminar with a challenge, in kind, for those who resort to imperfectly mono-issue defenses in explanation of their allegiance to Donald Trump.
