Bill de Blasio Dreams of a Communist Future

Intellectual takeout ^ | September 7, 2017 

In a candid interview in 'New York' magazine, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sounds like a full-blown communist.

If you are one of the millions who passes through New York City via the Cross Bronx Expressway, you have seen up close the devastating impact of New York City’s rent controls. As you grip your steering wheel on the poorly maintained expressway and look at the terrible conditions of the tenements all around, you see scenes that for a moment could make you believe you are looking at a bombed-out city in Europe after World War II, not 21st Century America. 
Sadly, the root causes of urban decay do not penetrate the consciousness of New York City’s mayor, Bill de Blasio. New Yorkers are suffering under rent controls, and yet, the mayor is gearing up for still larger battles against the laws of economics.
In a candid interview in New York Magazine, de Blasio wants us to believe that the residents of New York are now all central-planning socialists and communists:

“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.”
