In the west I get that we simp for landlords, but I’ve never even heard of like a Cuban anti landlord movement or ussr or whatnot.

The idea of profiting off of nothing but ownership is deeply rooted since it forms the foundation of politics and economy almost all countries in the world right now. Renters paying rent to the landlord is to some extent as natural as gravity for some reason. No one knows or cares how it came to be like this and it’s seen as something that you must just live with.

There is some sig resistance to the current rent model, georgism https://yewtu.be/watch?v=Li_MGFRNqOE

Hmm, maybe all people that rent already feel like landlords are shit? I think many people legit think the police is doing mostly fine, while I don’t think most people like the system of renting property (but they think they have to live with it).

We could do with hashtags to try to convert ppl who don’t rent to be anti landlord or smthg

I think that the problem is that people who don’t rent mostly own property. That’s why they have internalized all kinds of reasons why the system is very fair and good. It won’t be easy, but ofc I am happy for hashtag suggestions!

Maybe I’m viewing this wrong, but justifying owning your own property (ex 1 house) is one thing, but justifying landlords (own multiple properties) is another thing.

#fuckcars is an actual hashtags that is regularly used on Mastodon! I never thought fuckcars had a chance but now I think it might!

A simple #fucklandlords? Since that works for fuckcars.

yeah totally, but you know how people get, they’ll feel like someone wants to take away their home, lmao

#fuckLandlords could work I think

Get some leftist tiktokers on this asap and this could pop off overnight. Any idea how to get some internet celebrities on this?

no, I don’t have a high opinion of internet celebrities, even left ones ^^

Whats your idea on how to make a hashtag trend or whatnot? 😛

I honestly don’t know. I think it helps if we are chatting about it on lemmy.

Post anything rental / housing crisis related / just complain about your slumlord/landlord

The georgist idea of land tax is fair game.
