I'm actually of a similar mindset. I have rent to pay, but that's pretty much it. I operate some online business, and it gathers enough income for
me to comfortably live and save at the moment. I'm able to stock up on the things I need when I have to.
I think we need an economic collapse. We need an event to teach kids the value of money and work. We need an event to remind people what is actually
important in life. We need something to get rid of the mega-rich, and I hope this does it!
Also, I really, really, really hope (and I know a lot of people will not like me saying this) that the property market in the UK COMPLETELY collapses,
to the point where a single young man can actually AFFORD his own home without getting into a marriage of convenience or knocking some girl up!
Millions of people here have been artificially inflating the housing market for decades, pricing out the next generation for nothing but their own
greed. I just want a place to live in for the rest of my life, and I don't care if I don't make a profit from it, I just don't want to have to
spend 90% of my income for the next 30 years (if I could even get a mortgage) on just having a roof over my head!
