capitalist socialism - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
My retirement dream may not be for everyone, but it is my dream and one day I'm gonna do it. It's a sort of capital preserving socialism. I sell the family size house I have and I take my other retirement savings and buy myself something modest. With what I have left over I buy small homes, refurbish them, pay my bills - and then rent them out for as little as possible to young families, single mothers especially. I'll just calculate what it costs to maintain the homes, replace fixtures and such, and charge that much. It'll be my own little socialist housing project and I'll still have the capital I began with. I thought about a little luxury flat somewhere, but I can't do that when it means not helping others and making a difference in the lives of kids. That way, when my time comes, I will truly have lived a good life.
They were the real "angel" investors, parking capital to make free housing for vulnerable children and their parents. They bought the property, the government gave grants to bring it up to a good standard, and the housing became part of the national longterm housing solution. It helped those kids ace school instead of getting ACEs. It gave our communities better health outcomes too, and so our country did better on all scores.
The government made a new housing bond, you paid the money in to buy housing for the poor, they took care of the rest. We downsized just to pay into it and it was worth it, seeing the country rise instead of fall.
