if i were a landlord and scared about losing my income or my personal safety i would simply not base my livelihood on exploiting people for monetary gain

@dankwraith if I were a landlord I would rent my property out at exactly the cost of maintenance and refuse to pay the mortgage if my tenants couldn't pay the rent

@dankwraith Every company under capitalism is, by definition, build on exploiting people for monetary gain. It's fundamental to the system, not a few evil people.

@mort @dankwraith It’s fundamental to systems so broken that a few evil people can totally fuck everything up for everyone else… like capitalism.

But what would a system be like, which could deal with that evil minority? How would it work?
