But do you think people buying the property are doing it with the intention of pushing poor people out? Or do you think they are simply living their lives trying to provide for their family while doing something they may be passionate about that also provides a service/product for their community? Unless you have such tunnel vision that you can’t see anything beyond your own world view you’ll realize they aren’t intending anyone harm. So calling it economic violence and comparing it to real violence is a false equivalency. One act has malicious intent against people who are unaware of what they’ve down to anger anyone and the other is a byproduct of an action that had no ill intent whatsoever. The world is full of people living their lives with unintended consequences that the rest of us need to adapt to. Smashing cars and windows does not get any point across other than to say you are the enemies of working class people. Nobody cares what someone thinks after they destroy their property. Open minded discourse is the only way, in our civilized society, for a group that feels marginalized to have a seat at the table.
