The homes of rich people in Kensington could be seized for Grenfell Tower residents made homeless by fire, Jeremy Corbyn said today.
Mr Corbyn said the London borough was a ‘tale of two cities’ between a wealthy south and a poor north.
He suggested that ‘requisitioning’ vacant properties would be a solution to the shortage of available accommodation for those displaced.
‘Properties must be found – requisitioned if necessary – in order to make sure that residents do get rehoused locally,’ Mr Corbyn told a meeting of MPs.
‘How is it acceptable that in London you have luxury buildings and luxury flats kept empty as land banking for that future while homeless people look for somewhere to live?’
This is the rabbit strategy. Corbyn cannot possibly compete himself. But if he can pit enough competitive failures together against few enough people with success, he can use our peaceful system of government to create r-selection. He can reapportion resources to the competitive failures at no risk, creating r-selection.
It is a very complex way to try and recreate the natural environment of the human rabbit, and more and more I am thinking there has been some subsequent evolution encoding much of this complexity in emotional drives such as hatred of the successful and uncontrollable envy.
This is why we need the Apocalypse to put everyone on edge, and make everyone territorial over their own belongings, to the point that territoriality bleeds over into a moral principle that people’s earned property is their own.
