UBI without rent control / massive subsidized housing programs should be called Universal Landlord Income

@zatnosk yeah thats the thing UBI works great in a situation where a class of people arent directly on the take from essential human needs, which is the exact opposite of what we have


@dankwraith yeah, it sucks. Y'all really should get some systemic change implemented, so you can get on "the slippery slope to socialism".

But that's easy for me to say, with my privileged scandinavian ass.

Most I can do right now is proclaim that housing coops is a good system, and unions are the best way I know to socialism - at least if you're going for anything resembling the scandiavian model.
