I just realized that I’m the only person that I know (and I know enough people to be able to do the math on this), who has not stopped paying their monthly housing payment since money and wealth died some six years ago. In fact, once the math was done, it is astounding to see how people continue to live in the same house since it began even though they stopped making their monthly housing payment at the point when it hit them. There’s no official count (nor would I expect there to be) but the math says is somewhere between “a lot” and “most”.
Given that the economic problem, specifically the fact that we are all broke (because there is no money left), has affected everyone equally, I still can’t help but to feel like I missed something, even though I know that I didn’t. I think we all feel like that, in one way or another.
I wonder if any of them actually think they can bully their way out of this one, or even if they know that the wall behind which they have always hidden has been transparent for some time now.
We can do better.
