Come on a free walking tour exploring the intersection of real estate and social justice. Nominally, it's a survey of San Francisco social movement history; polemically, it's a rally for treating the economic value of land as a commonwealth.

People are animals as much as the Pt. Reyes elk . . . now some will say people over animals when it comes to land access, but who's prepared to say some have a greater human right to land against other humans?

"Reciprocity" is one of the tour's key concepts--relevant to the walk in meaning the exchange of goods and services for goods and services. The walk's talk argues (and illustrates through anecdote and real estate example) that the exchange of goods and services values for access to land/location is not an instance of reciprocity, but instead a great outrage against the natural right of all to occupy this planet. In other words, private property in locational value is substantially no different than share-cropping or feudalism. Happily, the walk proposes a piece of public policy legislation that would go far in remedying this calumny.
