Some of the views I thought I was discussing in the open with someone are subject to change, or further definition. I don’t subscribe to the idea that my current view of reality is absolute, unchangeable, and correct. I know that I lack detail occasionally- which is why I admitted so above and need to study some stuff.
In my case- the reason I’m against the idea of being evicted for not paying property tax- I’ve moved countless times, across countries 3 times, across states, and I’ve left places to live with family because of various circumstances that left me too poor to stay in place.
I simply want a place that I can eventually own, outright, mortgage or whatever paid off- so that owning it actually means I own it, in the true sense, and noone can take that away from me. Noone can kick me out, because it’s really mine- and my land. Meaning humanity can finally fuck off if I go inside.
I like the idea of pure freedom to exist, somewhere, without having to essentially pay for the privilege as we do now.
Yes, I know, utilities and such. Get a wood fired Bulljeran stove and solar panels and batteries for electricity, whatever. It’s the idea that if I wanted to, once you own your land- you’re done. You owe nothing more. You don’t have to worry about how people can sieze your assets if you’ve paid for them already.
Like I said- funding local infrastructure, I have no issues with- but I haven’t figured out a way to make that possible to de-link from this asset seizure model we live in. What if you have nothing to pay?
Have you never been poor?
I make a decent living right now, I’ve lost a lot of money this year in lost overtime by the end, but I’ve lived off the canned goods of my neighbors and without heat at one point in a foreign country- where I was during the recession of 08. I never asked- it was assumed I needed help, and it was incredibly humbling to have to accept it. I saw kindness can kill your soul as well as help you; I never want to feel indebted to anyone again. It made me change career paths to this. I lived in constant fear of being deported, because my job market there vanished almost overnight. I’ll never forget how fragile the ability to simply exist can be if you’re broke, and I’ve just scraped by most of my life.
For some reason here it’s specifically the idea that someone can seize your property if you don’t have enough money you seem to like?
And then right below that you seem to be concerned with people being evicted for that very reason?
That sounds incredibly hypocritical on the face of it.
Perhaps I missed something.
