I am a bit stuck on how fucked up the idea of rent is.
The rent on an apartment is generally more than the monthly cost of a loan to buy that same apartment, but a bank won't give you a loan to buy the apartment you live in unless you have money. So people who have the least money have to pay the most for housing without permanent benefit.
There are some nuances to it, like the cost and responsibility of repairs, but that doesn't change the general idea.
rant on wilw, transphobia
if you think it’s cool that Eugen is saying it’s bad that wilw got ran off here bc “he didn’t do anything wrong on mastodon”, ask yourself if he’d say the same if a known white supremacist joined + didn’t explicitly say anything racist on here. as a cis dude he’s totally unwilling to acknowledge transphobia as a deadly system of oppression, but rather reduces it to petty interpersonal twitter drama.
I make minute adjustments to recorded material no one will ever be aware of.
