One thought on “SENSIBLE SYLLOGISMS”

  1. Doing so well until the last one. Rentiers are not only the rich and powerful, nor are all the rich and powerful rentiers.

    Everyone who owns land is a rentier. Because many people gain small benefits – some of which are considerable against their own wealth – it is not about the rich and powerful vs the poor. In many cases, it is weighing the portions of our own income – rent, capital, labour – against each other.

    Yes, the squatter remains the enemy. Unfortunately, the squatter is now mixed within individuals with the worker, the investor and the entrepreneur.
