Mayor Bill de Blasio: New Yorkers Want Socialism, Property Rights ‘Unfortunate’

“I think there’s a socialistic impulse, which I hear every day, in every kind of community, that they would like things to be planned in accordance to their needs. And I would, too. Unfortunately, what stands in the way of that is hundreds of years of history that have elevated property rights and wealth to the point that that’s the reality that calls the tune on a lot of development.” -Bill de Blasio, Mayor of New York City
