It's not just about abusive housing practices; it's about leveling the playing field for everyone, across all the things we need in order to maintain a society of equals instead of falling back into oligarchy.
(And yeah, I know we were never really a society of equals -- but the internet *can* be a great leveler, if we can prevent and reverse its takeover by the oligarchs.)
i agree and hope for that better future ...
but this means oligarchs have to give up their money trough(voluntarily or by law (as if) or by force)
in my mind *this* is the sticking point ...
