"By itself, 40S is not going to solve the Massachusetts housing issue. What it does, though, is remove one of the last major above-ground reasons for saying no to housing. Soon all that will be left are the underground reasons: ugly reasons like classism and racism, which are harder to legislate but no less real.
"Affordable housing" can be code for "the wrong kind of people." But we need to ask ourselves: Who will live in that affordable housing? The answer is our sons and daughters. The answer is our future."
