HOUS­ING DREAM IS A NIGHT­MARE

Sunday Tasmanian - - News -

THE hap­pi­ness and mis­ery of Aus­tralian so­ci­ety is pro­por­tional to home own­er­ship. Those who are lucky enough to own their own home en­joy a greater de­gree of hap­pi­ness and se­cu­rity than those who are rent­ing, with lit­tle or no prospect of be­ing able to af­ford a de­posit, and pay­ing ex­or­bi­tant rents be­cause of a crit­i­cal lack of pub­lic hous­ing. Wait­ing lists and fraud­u­lent eco­nomic ex­cuses for the sup­ply of pub­lic hous­ing should not be tol­er­ated by the elec­torate.

Fed­eral and state gov­ern­ments are with­out con­science and em­pa­thy in deal­ing with the af­ford­able hous­ing dilemma. The es­sen­tial in­gre­di­ent is miss­ing, and that in­gre­di­ent is the will to serve so­ci­ety as a whole.

The com­mon good has been de­based to the com­mon greed.

The so­lu­tion: Sell Aus­tralia to the high­est bid­der and share the money equally among the pop­u­la­tion.
