First leftist rail about being forced to live in slums. Someone made them poor. They are always victims.
Usually this complaining leads to decades of support programs designed to build government dependence and make a handful of professional do-gooders rich running the programs.
Occasionally the slums become the focus of expensive urban renewal projects largely paid for by people who live outside the slums.
Most of the time the renewal projects are only a smoke screen for a series of wasteful projects designed to make a few wealth campaign supporters wealthier.
Rarely the renewal efforts are honest and actually work. Which make the former slums attractive to people, which draws in more businesses and people who legitimately want to live in and be a part of rebuilding a neighborhood.
Then the left goes nuts claiming - Gentrification and rising rents in some of the city???s previously more affordable areas have emotions running high in many districts. -
People!!! They were AFFORDABLE because they were SLUMS.
So the moral is this folks. Leftist want to either make money off HELPING the poor (forever) or spend someone elses money to fix up their slums. Once fixed up they want to lock out the people who paid for eliminating the slum so only they can enjoy the results of others efforts.
This happens all the time in the US. It is good to see it go public in Europe.
