Seeking Justice Podcast 3: What has become of our idea of property?

What has become of our idea of property?

What has become of our idea of property?

Land is money and, at least in the United Kingdom, we are obsessed by house prices. At the same time, many feel they don’t have much personal attachment to the places, and the neighbourhoods, where they live. Increasing numbers of us, especially in urban areas, live in middle-class ‘transit camps’, where we don’t know our neighbours, and don’t want to either. Yet increasing numbers of us also live, not in transit camps, but in detention areas, where we feel trapped and it’s very difficult to move out. What has become of our idea of property, in contrast to biblical ideas of the relationship between people and land? How could this affect the way we live our lives?

With Jonathan Burnside, Ian Rose, Donald Shell and Chris Willmore.
