For many, the urgent message of the YIMBY movement to "build, build, build housing" in order to bring down rents has been at least temporarily mooted by the fall in rents due to techies working from home.
For many, the urgent charge of the NIMBY movement to preserve neighborhoods from gentrification and spoliation has been at least temporarily mooted by the cessation of "money" moving in.

Now is the time for members of both movements to meet in "the radical middle." Come along on a walking tour that introduces and explores that middle place where social good is recognized and private rights are extolled.

While serving as a survey of social movement history in San Francisco, the tour's chief ambition is to introduce you to the magnificent role real estate tenure can play in setting things right, meaning cleaning up the streets of San Francisco.

In 1879, a San Francisco self-made social philosopher (nee newspaperman), proposed upscaling the socialization of land values while simultaneously down-sizing taxes on goods and services (and their production).

The happy result would be, from a social perspective, everyone being the per capita landlord of all the land, thus everyone having a vested economic interest in their neighborhood, their city, their county, their state, their nation. And the corollary to this would be everyone being, compared to present governmental interference, free to build, work, create without implicit or explicit dunning.
FREE. Light rain won't cancel, but call to confirm.
