Show Notes
Its an absolute pleasure to have Fred Harrison (Share the Rents) kick the year into gear with an appraisal of his new book series ‘We Are Rent’. Listening to his surgical tact one can’t help but feel these teachings contain deep and meaningful wisdoms addressing the key issues of our times. Just when you think you know it all, Fred unpeels another layer of understanding: “We continue to privatise the essence of our humanity. Those of us who claim to own land and therefore claim the rents that are produced in our societies are actually enacting the role of slavery. We are appropriating other people’s humanity.”
