A Thought on the Sale of Public Housing Stock to Council Tenants | Nicky Patterson

20 Apr

The sale of council housing stock to social tenants was a method of extending quasi-bourgeoisie attitudes of property (and all of its associated norms and values) deeper into the proletarian mindset, in other words further normalising the concept of property ownership, therefore pre-empting and, thus undermining all future support for proletarian mass action.

How might this process be reversed in a peaceable manner from a retroactive perspective? Is it necessary to do so? Is property ownership (and subsequent transfer by sale) reconcilable with a socialist-collectivist approach to society?
