I don’t see how bringing up the property value in a neihborhood and slowly easing out the unsavory is bad. But thats just me. Perhaps I’m jaded.
Gentrification isn’t just bringing up property value in a neighborhood and “slowly easing out the unsavory”. What do you even mean by that? Do you mean poor people? Because that is who is getting effected by it the most and that includes me and many people I know. We should be able to live where we want to. Rent has doubled and tripled in many parts of Brooklyn because of upper middle class and upper class people moving in and pushing us out without any remorse or guilt. What makes their coffee shops and boutiques better than the bodegas and 99 cent stores? They are small businesses too. The value of a neighborhood SHOULD NEVER be determined by what class of people live in it. We are not unsavory. We belong here.
look if you unironically say ‘money can’t buy happiness’ then either you’ve never faced a real financial struggle or you’ve achieved enlightenment, because goddamn does financial security feel an awful lot like happiness when it’s something you’re not used to

oh my god. i may have found heaven.
yep. This was actually a ‘program’ started by the Fascist/Catholic regime in Spain during Franco’s dictatorship. The idea was to steal babies from ‘left leaning’ parents, poor single mothers and sell them to right wing parents. The Spanish Catholic church has been quiet about this, but there have been dozens of protests and lawsuits. Investigations are still going on. There’s a really interesting documentary on this, I’ll have to find it.
This is another reason why I have zero respect for the Catholic Church in Spain, or Franco sympathizers.
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
