It struck me when Senator Elizabeth Warren recently proposed that the CDC should be allowed to cancel rent whenever it wants that it was a significant moment. Free rent at the expense of landlords would be a radical redistribution of private property, and occurring at the whim of an unelected bureaucracy it would undermine the principle of private property itself. Earlier, Warren proposed a wealth tax, likewise a maneuver to redistribute private property on a wholesale basis. This sort of thing has always been the end goal of the Left, of course, but I don’t recall a politician bringing it up so boldly or so frequently. I was reminded of how Nobel-prize winning economist Friedrich Hayek replied when asked what was the one most meaningful thing he would say to future generations. What he has to say is chilling.
