gentrification III

by minima whatever

I wonder what it will do to them when grown-ups sharing converted living rooms because they cannot afford a room, much less an apartment of their own, will become the new normal around these parts. What neuroses & illnesses it will breed. Because these are not just people living together because that’s just how things are; these are people remembering different times, and feeling it ‘should’ be different. Which does not make it objectively worse (we don’t deserve more or less of anything just because we are used to more or less of it)  – just them more likely to react badly to it.
