honestly the thing i hate the most about our society is the unholy amount of money you have to regurgitate for the right to have your own physical space

the rest of it i could live with

like, i don't mind paying money for food or utilities or insurance bills

but i do mind having to spend almost half my income on rent and having no other options other than being homeless

and of course lots of cities literally make it illegal to sleep in your car because they felt like they had to make being homeless even worse than it already is

fun fact: the US has more empty houses than homeless people

So much funny is that not. But here in Berlin, Germany there are also many abandoned houses and not less homeless people.




Same in the UK. part of it is land banking and waiting for the market to peak - well to maximise a return?

With pensions being crap and housing prices obviously rising faster than the average wage, I can see why a house would be used as an asset and investment if you have the luck of owning one outright.

time to come together and punch upwards for the rest 😄
