Well it isn't really free shit. You still pay rent and it is actually a concession won from capital through struggle, hardly free.

Anti-capitalism is good.

All you're focused on is fairness. Life is not fair, get over it. I'd rather see the city do what is best for economic growth and not necessarily do what is the most fair.

This might surprise you but the USSR and the PRC were, and in the case of china definitely are even more so now, state-capitalist. If you are interested in the concept CLR James writes about it if you are interested in the concept.

Good to see that classic Rifleman content hasn't lost its touch around here.

It would be awesome if BC, BU, Harvard, and MIT would work together to build that in the Allston Yards.

Currently in Toronto and it's amazing how much construction is going on in this city. There's a new high-rise project going up every 3 or 4 blocks. I feel like there are more construction here than NYC.

One thing you'll notice on your way into the city from Pearson is that the construction is not restricted to downtown. There are several pockets of high-rises dotting the area, several of which already have towers at least 500ft tall with more under construction and are big enough to look like a skyline for a mid size city. The core itself isn't as dense as Chicago yet but give it 5 years and they may just surpass them.
