all I need is a room somewhere - convert a van

Tibestian Book of the Undead - part 3

all I need is a room somewhere

(banking, buy to enslave, fiction, housing, learned helplessness, monopoly, Rothschild, satire, TibestianUndead, reinventing slavery, )

I've been diverted from my reminiscence - the Napoleonic wars - by today's news. though it is related.

Apparently foreigners have been investing dirty money in property (hardly news, is it?) in the UK, especially in London, as investments.
UK property no safe haven for 'dirty money'

They could care less whether they find tenant/victims to exploit, so long as the price (not value) keeps going up.

This calls to mind the song 'All I need is a room somewhere'. It would take about a month to build one, or a week to convert a suitably large old van, but the powers that be would rather we spent our whole lives in debt, as cogs in a machine that they devise.
housing debt

This catastrophe was probably inevitable since the Napoleonic wars, when the Rothschilds invented insider-dealing and were extravagantly rewarded for their crime.

The most important room in anyone's life is their body. It's the room your soul and mind inhabit. The body needs one decent room for its own comfort, security and nurturing.

It feels like half the population is trapped into a mortgage-for-life due to the very rich inflating house prices. The others are either trapped in rented (the buy to enslave phenomena) or in 'social' housing that, in the long term, creates utter dependency on Mother state: learned helplessness.

It's hardly surprising that the few that create their own homes in converted vans engender such irrational loathing and anger in the idle rich, as they desperately try to suppress their guilt.

Marty's addition:

Pathological Wealth has monopolised housing so that young people are trapped in rented slavery, preferably for 'life'. The radical solution is for youngsters to convert a large van to live in, then you can save your wages for a better home.

homeless people need empathy

  1. No worries...I recently read that world governments and large corporations have come up with an idea which will not only free up housing for people but also feed the world's poor. What did they call it? Um, soylent blue? No...soylent green I think...

  2. The 'system' has been eating people ever since aristocrats/lords/monarchs/capitalists had power

  3. Give your cash directly and unconditionally to homeless people.

    Don’t just buy them a sandwich from Pret. They’re not four. They have the right to spend their money as they choose – and it is their money, once given. Don’t just give to people performing, singing, or accompanied by a cute dog. Buskers deserve a wage too, of course. But homeless people are not your dancing monkey and they shouldn’t have to perform to earn your pity.
