The Eviction Moratorium is a Gift to Corporate America (Really)
So the CDC has extended its eviction moratorium. And millions of WOKE people throughout the nation are cheering at this supposed victory for poor people against all of those greedy, fat cat landlords. But the people cheering have not thought this through. Then again, in America 2021 nobody thinks anything through. Society has devolved into knee-jerk political reactions and tribalism. People at large are stupid because their political and corporate overlords want them to be stupid. But allow me just 3 minutes and I’ll unpack all this for you.
- The term “landlord” comes from feudalism and the Middle Ages. Back then, lords and nobles owned all the land. Peasants and serfs had to rent. When woke people hear the term landlord, they have a knee-jerk reaction against it. They assume that “landlords” must be greedy fat-cats. But that’s not true.
- At least half of all “landlords” in America are small time. They’re mom and pop. Middle class people. Retirees who invested their life savings in a buying an investment property.
- The CDC eviction moratorium guidelines are objectively ridiculous…
