    I travel a lot. Until the point where we stop charging people to have a freaking roof over their head. Seriously, no one else finds something wrong with that?

    A place to stay for everyone should be a goal of our society. There are millions of people going hungry and unsheltered in our own country.

    You should find the source of this problem and not just give houses and food for free.
    People should work in order to receive a house.
    Show me how many of these homeless you know are working ?
    Show me one guy that works and can not afford a place to stay.
    Giving houses for free will only encourage more lazyness, trust me.
    Creating more working places should be a goal.


    I am from a communist country.
    We did that as an experiment: it was the worst social experiment in the world, it was communism.
    Everybody received a house for free if they were married.
    Look where we are now...

    i went for the house, nothing beats a check from the gov for 8k, i dont think ive ever seen a check that looked so nice, it was all "FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS TAX REBATE" in elegant calligraphy. the paper it was printed on must have been worth at least half the value of the check, too.

    but the best part of owning a home young is knowing that when your mortgage is paid, you're retiring almost 20 years earlier than anyone else in your demographic.

    if i live that long anyways, amirite?!??

    If the government/economy hasn't collapsed by then.
    The unfunded liabilities in the bottom row are always good for some lulz.

    if the economy collapses, would you rather be living with a 30 year fixed rate mortgage or a monthly rent bill that increases 25% everytime you pay it

    edit : i started watching the unemployment clock. everytime it goes up one, i just imagine some poor sap walking out of his bosses office with his tail between his legs, wondering if hes gonna be alright.

    man unemployment is an ugly beast, thats a really really scary number right there.

    i was there for a while til i decided to pursue a new trade.

    that shit sucks, it sucks real bad.

    I guess I just wish we were in the utopia age, maybe it's not too far away, but it probably is.

    I don't believe people should have to work just to get the basics of survival. In this sense, we're all slaves.

    Wait, wtf? You biked to Florida?

    Also, correct phase is wage slave. If Marx isn't the greatest sociologist/labor economist of all time, then I don't know who is.

    You realize that someone will have to work in order to provide for the ones that "get the basics of survival".
    Trust me on this:
    The more you give to someone for free, they will work less, the less they work, the degradation start.
    In the end you will have a fuckload of poor and lazy people and then problems.

    As long as you don't have an adjustable-rate mortgage, you should be fine. If you have one however, you're screwed. Comparatively to other services and goods, in times of crisis, housing prices take a much lower percentage of one's all in all spending. Therefore, compared to now, houses will require much less purchasing power to acquire if/when inflation comes and it would be quite expensive to pay for a mortgage with an adjustable rate under inflation.

    Indeed, so two things have to happen.

    First, we have to stop having so many god damn kids,

    Second, we have to invent programmable highly adaptive robotic machines, ala I-robot style. (without them trying to take over the human race, of course).

    Until then, human nature prevents us from living in a utopia. Few people would really do much for a stranger.

    Though I don't believe i'd be as bad as you say, I'm talking about simple, basic food, and shelter. Nothing fancy, just the means to survive without being forced to work.

    Wage slave, well, yes, but that's just like a slave of old, the only difference is we get to "choose" were we work. And in a lot of ways we're even worse off, because you can't even be guaranteed a simple minimum wage job. That's just shit. There are MILLIONS (that's right, 1 followed by fucking six zeros) of homeless people in America alone, without anywhere to go, no one gives a shit about them, the entire problem is swept under the rug because somehow people assume they're all drug addicts. Some are, most aren't.
