"price regulations by the government"
🤔 the last time i checked it wasn't the state telling your boss to rip you off, or the distributor to overstock food and throw out what isn't bought amid thousands fucking starving, or the developers to build houses only for the rich, or the slumlords and "rental management agencies" who hold our access to shelter hostage. profit drives artificial scarcity and if we are to survive then it must be destroyed.
@firstname.lastname@example.org @And_Zoidberg as for the "how", the first step is survival. the rich and the scabs do not consider these problems the way that those murdered by them do; it is an abstraction to them, a kind of amusing puzzle. to me it is a gun pointed at everyone i know.
grey markets, acapital material networks, whispernets, stakeholder cooperatives, and sheer comradery have kept us alive and as they mature and fortify, they will keep more of us alive. we must seize the means of survival.
