if you want to understand california politics all you need to know is that everyone bought a house for four dollars in the 70s or 80s and its now worth 2 million and are trying as hard as they fucking can to keep it that way
@dankwraith eeeeeeeeeeeeyyyy was jus tthinking baou thow i was homeless in cali and how my relatives were really fucking shit to me about it
(not everyone can just have their relatives fucking give them a house, and thats why they were fuck to me)
homelessness, homeless ppl, poverty reduction Show more
@lugh @dankwraith Theres a matter of freedom to self-represent here when youre disadvantaged & you have needs to address. We have the appropriate technology movement, as one avenue, but the solutions are social too.
And if theres nowhere where youre hanging out w/ homeless ppl, when are you going to breach that status line in your life, & when are the homeless going to?
Thats why the economic & housing availability problems havent been addressed, thats a hard line for so many ppl thats very strongly promoted, is not associating w/ homeless ppl.
And not understanding & addressing the needs of the homeless.
Shelter from death by the elements, thats appropriate housing, & thats what cops destroy.
@dankwraith the free market is a religion, not a rational idea
@dankwraith you can have affordable housing, our profitable housing, but not both
@dankwraith same except instead of lying down I want to start setting fires
@dankwraith having lived here MOST of my life, this is 100% accurate.
The IPOs that are all going public in the next 1-3 months are going to ruin NorCal even moreso. I hope they all go bankrupt.
@ItsJenNotGabby its cool that norcal used to be an affordable and beautiful place to live with a thriving arts culture and now its just neoliberal hell
@dankwraith Homelessness is very much a problem with the definition of property, & its usefulness as a legal construct for addressing the negotiation of access to space that ppl carry out in practice, in contrast to the govt's assertions of who has right to access to a space.
