It is said that ‘We Become What We Think’. This principal of manifestation cannot be ignored, as we can see the truth of this all around us in our own lives. That’s why it’s so disturbing to realize what top tier politicians say (not to mention what they do). But, it’s how they think that defines and directs their sociopolitical views and goals.
Keeping this in mind it’s so unsettling to hear about the Mayor of New York’s recent interview in New York Magazine, where he comes right out and says that he thinks it would be in the best interest of all the people of New York if the Govt took complete control of ‘much’ (if not all) of the private property in the City.
You know he’s not alone in these sentiments. It’s surely no secret that the ‘El-lites‘ faun for the days of ‘Feudalism’ to officially return. Perhaps those with this mindset have totally forgotten what country they live in, and why the Govt of these United States created the ‘Homestead Acts’ of the 1800’s, allowing ‘common folk’ to stake their claim to their own piece of the American Dream. It was done not out of charity for the citizens, but to build a future ‘Tax Base’ via the property taxes the Govt would be able to levy.
Unfortunately the 1% continuously set such ‘Bad Examples’ allowing their lust for power and greed to overwhelm them. Thus creating the utter distain for their stewardship, and divisiveness between the classes.
A recent article by Kelen McBreen captures the De Blasio interview;
“What’s been hardest is the way our legal system is structured to favor private property. I think people all over this city, of every background, would like to have the city government be able to determine which building goes where, how high it will be, who gets to live in it, what the rent will be. I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development”
The comments clearly advocate a Communist-style, government-controlled private property system. The Daily Wire accurately compared the quote to the teachings of Karl Marx.
