Progressives and socialists need to start dishing back what is being dished out. We cannot let the right (conservatives or corporate democrats) determine the narrative.
We need to communicate the “truth” of Capitalism. Here is an example:
"After the real estate bubble popped, taking the U.S. economy with it, more than 9 million homes were foreclosed or sold at a loss, leading to fears that tracts of abandoned neighborhoods would become “ghost towns.”
While this happened in some areas of the country, elsewhere, the empty homes were an opportunity—most of all for Wall Street investors that swooped in to buy properties in bulk and rent them out at a profit.
In the decade since the crash, 7 million more households have become renters, while only 1 million more have become homeowners, according to Census data. And “institutional landlords,” as the Wall Street investors are called, have become a major driver of the affordable housing woes many Americans are now facing—from steep rent payments all the way to eviction."
