True Life 2: Gentrification

From The UN Declaration Of Human Rights
Article 13.

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.
(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.

Article 25.

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

Gentrification, it did not just happen to Native Americans during President Jackson’s time. We have an economic “Trail Of Tears” in our time. Because even good wages are not good enough people in New Jersey and some other places are leaving.

In one part of New Jersey, there are still possibilities. People from New York and New Jersey find their way. But life becomes heart breaking and disappointing. “The place we are living now is a somewhat Socially Retarded.”

There is some culture here, but people hate it regret it everyday. many say, “We wished we where not marooned here.” Why? Because it is not the environment, their land, nor their people. Even if one lives in the same country in the same state doesn’t mean people are alike of share common values.

One man lost his home in Passaic County years ago. “I wish I could have made it home. I used to live in some of NYC’s SRO’s (Sleeping Rooms Only).  I moved to the affordable country. These People here are a nightmare. It is like the Deep South with Out the Hospitality.”  There is lots of poverty, no opportunities.

WPIX in New York States:

The study does not break new ground on the presence of gentrification in several New York City neighborhoods, or the fact that rising rents are squeezing out longtime residents and attracting younger, more affluent renters and home buyers.

“Both rent burden and crowding rates increased in gentrifying areas, but did not increase as rapidly as they did in non-gentrifying neighborhoods…discussions around mitigating the effects of rapidly rising rents should arguably not be confined to specific neighborhoods.” A lot of people cannot afford the homes they grew up in.

The Guardian Reports:
Opposition to gentrification is rapidly becoming less marginal, and more organized.

Gentrification is an intensely emotive issue with almost endless potential for argument. That shouldn’t be in the least bit surprising – it speaks to fundamental questions of home, identity and community, how those places define us, and how we define them. The process of displacement of society’s poorest members is, of course, not a new thing.

You can trace it back centuries, to a time when there was a literal gentry responsible for social cleansing; when the bailiffs were on horseback and “artisanal” was a descriptor of a pre-industrial social class, rather than vogueish hipster branding.

People could live quite nicely in their home land. If we had a Social Economy,
Living Wage, Living Universal Income, quality Affordable Housing.

The feeling is that we losing the best years of our lives. Our Aspirations shattered, hour hopes and dreams in ruin. This is not what we wanted or expected.

Some people admit they feeling like ending it all. One quoted, “Who wants to live like this? There was a time a person could go back home. Now what we get is a economy of “The Race To The Bottom”.



The Palatial Alexander-Edgewater NJ. (It would blow your mind. I was beside myself for weeks.)

When I was a child living near Bergen County, from Hoboken to Fort Lee, was the Garment Industry. People from all over could come and settle. Now the is nothing but Luxury Condos and opulence. If these Condos or Apartments are not rented the Government will provide compensation for the Land Lords. They already get their hand outs in the millions. The Rich Man’s Universal Income.

Cultural Alienation: We have culture because, culture is a ordinary habit/attitude of people in their daily lives. Everyday, we have no access to our culture. As what is said culture is just everyday life of who we are and where we come from . Social alienation is “a condition in social relationships reflected by a low degree of integration or common values and a high degree of distance or isolation between individuals of different cultures, or between an individual and a group of people in a community or work environment”.
In essence, people from different Counties, parts of or even different States, or A Nation.The solutions is a Living Wage and Living Income, so we can all go home or stay home as we wish.
