    little lord f***leroy here, i believe the land of the lords must make a living but also understand the means of compassion and integrity. your tenant is a few days overdue? as long as you yourself arent gonna die then whatever, give him another month. if you are living paycheque to paycheque based on being a landlord you yourself are the problem and are an idiot.

    I really don’t understand why we treat landlords like some small business owner regardless of size and scale. If you fail to run your business, you fail the livelihoods of your tenants. Being unfit to run a rental property should carry much higher penalties than “well s***, hope he pays up and y’all can figure it out in the meantime”. This isn’t Joe down the street’s pizza shop. This is life for people already with the deck stacked against them for upward mobility.

    Seize the buildings and sell them to the community at market price. “But that’s a slippery slope of letting the government seize property!” Well amend the laws then! If a landlord is unfit to serve and it ends in a situation like this, all penalty should be on the landlord not the renters. Housing is not just property, it’s a roof over another human’s head. The law needs to reflect that and protect people not faceless slumlords who can’t even be bothered to provide f***ing water for people.

    Agree 100% if I was a landlord (It's my dream) I would have the highest standards for myself as there's not many more important jobs than Providing someone with a good home . Bad ones should be punished

    Agreed

    The state should be in charge of administrating the expansion and landscape of its cities and should work together with its architects and engineers to design adequate living quarters

  • landlords are the most significant enforcers of classism

  • Age like wine

  • Do violence upon them

  • 1 of the greatest and most venerated follies of all the absurdities that man worships. The property right is as old as mankind's ignorance and blindness, yet a right does not automatically have the "right" to exist simply because it is old. If this is a ridiculous privilege, it must be abolished without regard for when it was created—that is, when man first clothed himself with animal hides to hide his nudity.Due to its roots in deception, misuse of authority, and crime, the right to property is an illogical one. There was no such thing as an individual's claim to territorial property at first. Harvests were shared, woodlands supplied firewood for everyone's hearths, and land was cultivated collectively.

  • The individual's claim to territorial property arose as a result of the first ambitious person who waged war on a neighboring tribe in order to force it into servitude, with the land that the tribe cultivated in common becoming under the control of the conqueror and his captains. Thus, private, territorial property emerged as a result of bloodshed and force. Other sources of private, territorial property include speculation, fraud, and theft (which may or may not be legal, but is still theft). After seizing the land, the early robbers formed laws to safeguard what they called and still call a "right," that is, the right they gave themselves to use the lands that they had taken and enjoy the produce.
