RE: Landlordism Causes Homelessness
1) this is an assertion and you need to justify it
2) do you have a better option?

RE: Landlordism Causes Homelessness
People shouldn't rent?

I'm not following. As far as rents are concerned, the market will only bear what it can bear...If you don't have enough places to rent, the rent goes up, if there are too many available the rent goes down...

I'm not seeing where this directly causes homelessness. I know some are tossed out of their apartments, but in our area there's protections against no fault evictions.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Landlordism Causes Homelessness
Landlordism gives shelter to those who, in many other cases, would be homeless without the means to purchase a home.

Discuss.

This is an unfinished high rise building in Venezuela after Chavez and Maduro came to power. It has no running water or electricity. Chavez declared that the owners of the building should give the people the units for free (communism). Without incentive to continue bank-rolling the construction the developer packed up and left. So far the Venezuelan government has yet to complete the buildings (like they ever intended to). These have been tagged as vertical slums.

Populism sounds great until you try and put it into practice, then it turns into a festering pile of shit with only the dictators living in lavish splendor.

RE: Landlordism Causes Homelessness
In the US affordable housing is not the leading cause of chronic homelessness. Mental illness and substance abuse are. There is some that are homeless due to lack of cheap housing, but it is much more likely that a homeless person will be mentally ill or a drug addict. Which would point to our problem with homelessness being a result of a failure in our public health care system and disregard of mental health treatment, especially for veterans.

There is little alternative option to private land ownership. There are efforts in some cities to build tiny home parks for the homeless with medical facilities and gardens. These have met with some success, although I'm not sure if this is due to the homes themselves or due to the care and community that comes with it. This is not a large-scale solution for the entire population. It simply isn't viable.

The 2nd most biggest, fattest, most landownininist feudalistic style LANDLORD in the good ol' UFSA: Ted That-lib'rul-Jane-Fonda-got-half-my-$-and-I'm-still-livin'-LARGE! Turner, woohoo!

Quote:Mr. Turner is the second largest individual landowner in North America, with approximately two million acres (it's more than that)of personal and ranch land in 11 U.S. states and Argentina. Mr. Turner owns nineteen ranches – sixteen in the western U.S. and three in Argentina.
