Paul Graham is Still Asking to be Eaten
Holly Wood, PhD 🌹

For a jaw-dropping look at how the millionaires screw the working people, I recommend the documentary Battle for Brooklyn. The people of a Brooklyn neighborhood fought the investors behind the Barclays Center for 8 years in its eminent domain quest for the property on which the Center is built. The Center was obviously built, but the jobs, additional housing and office buildings were never completed. If anyone lives in Chicago, imagine a private investment company evicting residents and businesses in a neighborhood such as Ravenswood to make room for a sports arena.
