Now the second instalment from a communist state, now, as all my friends know that at present you can call me homeless ;p because I wont go back to my ancestral home, so in literal sense I am homeless living in rented houses that cost a deadly amount still I believe that if one person makes fifty houses, buys fifty houses from his honestly earned money no one should hold a grudge against him, and it is totally his wish what he will do with those houses.
Last week I was talking about homelessness and how governments can solve them if they wish. The governments have quite an ample amount of power and resources, to prevent people from acquiring wealth that is not rightfully theirs and if that is done then things will be absolutely peachy, the employees they rob will get their due wages and most will build own houses, the governments will get their due taxes and they will be able to help destitute.
The “grab from the rich” and poor will be rich is a lie, those who “grab from rich” keep the goods for themselves poor get nothing.
The commies and refugees from Bangladesh did exactly this, most of the CPIM leaders and cadres are refugees from Bangladesh, when they initially reached the country and occupied empty houses, lands even the owners did not objected, out of pity, then they overstayed and finally in most cases captured the properties, of course some homeless got homes but in one too many cases they sold off the properties to higher bidders, no commies helped them in legalizing their encroachments, I don’t know if that law is still there but there was a law in west Bengal that allowed tenants to buy their rented dwellings for dimes if they had been staying there for some years.
Now, not all of these landlords were rich, the ones that were rich bought the commies and were spared, the ones that lost their dwellings were mostly helpless and weak, elderly, widows or too poor to fight corruption.
Tell me one thing, do you really think it is fair? Just because someone has some property they will have to be harassed?
Instead of helping people to build their own they should be taught to snatch from those who have something which they own rightfully! I am not talking about those who illegally acquire things, they ironically are rarely touched by law ;p
If illegal activities are stopped properly then majority of these things will stop, that is, unequal distribution of wealth, property, so if you want to do it, strike the right place.
