Grenfell Housing and Local Councils - Capitalism and Housing

Democracy and Class Struggle echo's Engels in his essay on the Housing Question who says that capitalism would never solve the Housing Question but just move it around  

"How The Bourgeoisie Solves The Housing Question"

Like many of capitalism's ills they are returning in bucketloads in 21st Century - reformism has never tackled the structural prioblems that reproduce the problem - because that means the end of capitalism.

William Morris in the 1890's could see that but we are engaged on the blind reformist merry go round again.

Housing is a right and not a commodity but a common good and we need a system that realises that rational thought.
