„[Ein schüler] wurde gestern gegen seinen Willen aus der Englischstunde zu einem Einzelgespräch mit einer Dame vom #Jobcenter #Wuppertal gezwungen. Dustin sagte mehrfach, dass er kein Einzelgespräch machen wolle, aber die Dame vom Jobcenter sagte dann zu ihm, dass er es müsse, da seine Eltern ja Kunden seien und er verpflichtet ist, mitzumachen, sonst gäbe es Sanktionen. Im nachfolgenden Gespräch mit dem Schüler habe eine Jobcenter-Sachbearbeiterin den Sohn aufgefordert, nach dem Schulabschluss umgehend eine Lehre zu beginnen. Dustin will aber lieber sein Abitur machen, um später studieren zu können.“
"How the pandemic improved my mental health"
"As a 60-year-old lifelong sufferer of mental illness, I was surprised to notice midway through California’s covid-19 lockdowns how much my symptoms had improved. I suddenly felt better, happier, lighter even. I was more centered. I was sleeping better. I hadn’t felt this good in years."
An essay (?) in the Washington Post.
and “gentrification” is entirely about an act of settling wealth in places where it’s the easiest to do so — i.e., working communities, poorer communities, etc. — by displacing those without wealth and forcing them to be removed to another place in town (or out of town)
removed to where? they don’t care. they got theirs when they bought out the place/neighbourhood
with that last boost from my other account:
i went to hecking school to become an urban planner (before finding out that trannies don’t get to be urban planners in this country), and never once did any text, scholar, or instructor i ran across during that time have a clear, short, to the point definition for “gentrification”
i had to come up with one, and it took me until 2016
the key word is “cleansing” because notwithstanding how that’s exactly what it is, the point is gentrification is extremely deliberate, tacit (wordless), and completely conscious in its execution of displacement and eradication of folks who lack the structural upper hand in race, class/vocation, income/material wealth, legal citizenship, and on and on
