Chinese millionaires innundate Australian #property.
As shown in the graphic below, Australia received the most millionaire migrants (+5,200), while China (-13,500) and India (-6,500) lost the largest number of millionaire migrants:
“#Anarchism, then, really stands for the #liberation of the human #mind from the dominion of #religion; the liberation of the human #body from the dominion of #property; liberation from the shackles and restraint of #government. Anarchism stands for a social #order based on the #free grouping of #individuals for the purpose of producing real social #wealth; an order that will guarantee to every human being free access to the earth and full enjoyment of the #necessities of life, according to #individual #desires, #tastes, and #inclinations.”

#BLM protesters were targeted by federal government with stiffer punishments, an analysis shows
By Christina Carrega, CNN
August 20, 2021
"The Justice Department targeted more than 300 #protesters by charging them with federal crimes for their roles during the civil unrest last summer after the murder of #GeorgeFloyd, according to a new report from The #MovementForBlackLives, a coalition of #Black advocacy groups.
"The report found that more than 90% of federal cases against Black Lives Matter protesters could have been charged in state court – and that in 88% of those cases, the federal charges carried more severe penalties than similar state charges.
"'This persecution resulted in hundreds of organizers and #activists facing years in federal prison with no chance of parole,' the report read. It was co-authored by CUNY School of Law’s Creating Law Enforcement Accountability & Responsibility Clinic.
"The report also contends that federal officials have tried to suppress Black social movements going back decades. For instance, at the direction of former #FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, officials spied on and interrogated leaders associated with the #BlackPanther Party as well as #AngelaDavis, #MartinLutherKingJr and #MalcolmX.
"According to the report, this was done 'in a deliberate bid to infiltrate, penetrate, disorganize, and disrupt the Black movements for rights, power, and freedom, and to preserve the established #WhiteSupremacist order.'
"The report, which focused on the period of nationwide civil unrest sparked by Floyd’s death in May 2020 at the hands of police in #Minneapolis, was released this week. It was first reported by The Associated Press.
"Federal officials filed a litany of charges against racial justice protesters over five months after Floyd’s death, including 105 for arson, 49 for civil disorder, 45 for assault against an officer and 30 felon-in-possession of a weapon cases.
"According to the report, the 'vast majority of charges brought were for non-violent offenses or offenses that were potentially hazardous but were restricted to #property destruction, not violence against people.'"
We're living in the dumbest possibly universe. What's dumber than delusional #conspiracy theorists believing that #wildfires are started by #spacelasers, and that you can protect your property by painting it blue? How about those same conspiracy theorists believing that a 2018 #FEMA program to provide blue #tarps to help #property owners protect their property is evidence that their space #laser conspiracy is true! 🤦♂️

STOCKHOLM, Sept 15 (Reuters) - For months, Sweden's government has sought to play down a #property #crisis that has throttled confidence in the Nordic state, repeating a simple message: While some companies are in trouble, the country is not.
'...Michael Gove, made a further concession to the builders’ cause. To ease the pain of an end to rural building targets, he introduced an amendment to a levelling up bill that would absolve housebuilders from polluting local watercourses. Even Tory peers would not stand for that, and it was given short shrift in the House of Lords on Wednesday.'
'The Conservatives have an “unhealthy financial reliance” on property developers, with more than a fifth of all donations to the party over the past decade coming from the residential property sector, a report by a leading anti-corruption group has said.'

“In the three years to mid-2020, #Chinese #property developers issued some $160 billion in dollar-denominated bonds; by June 2020, they had a market value of $173 billion in aggregate. All of those bonds were sold to foreign investors wanting to get in on a fast-growing industry.
Then, the companies started defaulting.”
If a piece of land has speculative value some people will play the market and try to win the biggest profit. Many people cannot play the market and just want a place to live their lives.

"The purpose of these policies that landlords like Lane can’t stand are to stop landlords like Lane investing in houses, so property prices fall, so people can buy a first home, so we don’t have a housing crisis.

@echanda @Leszek_Karlik @HeavenlyPossum I consider IP to be the first type of property to be abolished, not an afterthought. It can't even be justified by the idealized just-so stories that capitalists like to use to justify absentee property ownership -- that's why many US Libertarians and AnCaps oppose IP. It is purely a state-designed industrial policy, implemented without good empirical or theoretical justification, and easily abused by special interests (as evident by the retroactive copyright extension from the Sonny Bono/Mickey Mouse protection act).
We could abolish it tomorrow with minimal disruption to the real economy. We could reduce copyright term to 30 years and change hardly anything at all except for the profits of some plutocrats.

"Waning demand for office space has driven down landlords’ asking rents"
"Remote work risks wiping $800 billion from the value of office buildings in major cities worldwide by 2030"
There's a lot of rich people's money which hinges on convincing us that offices are better.

I see the term "common property" was misunderstood by other comments. #ElinorOstrom calls them "common-pool resources", a subset of the #commons.
The CPR model doesn't require any one specific model of #property and works across resources with very different arrangements. That's part of the beauty of it. It demolishes the false dichotomy #privatization vs. #nationalization.

Suppose you think what the world really needs is more solar panels. You are free (even encouraged) to go out and build a solar panel factory.
On the other hand, suppose you think the world needs LESS fossil fuels. You are NOT allowed to go shut down oil wells -- that is something only the owner of the well may do.
This asymmetry between creating vs dismantling means that, in some sense, neverending economic growth is baked into the very concept of property and ownership.

“Public torture, in seventeenth-century Europe, created searing, unforgettable spectacles of pain and suffering in order to convey the message that a system in which husbands could brutalize wives, and parents beat children, was ultimately a form of love… It seems to us that this connection – or better perhaps confusion – between #care and #domination is utterly critical to the larger questions of how we lost the ability freely to recreate ourselves by recreating our relationships with one another. It is critical, that is, to understanding how we got stuck, and why these days we can hardly envisage our own past or future as anything other than a transition from smaller to larger cages.”

“What makes the Roman Law conception of property - the basis of almost all legal systems today - unique is that the responsibility to care and share is reduced to a minimum, or even eliminated entirely. In Roman Law there are three basic rights related to possession: usus (the right to use), fructus (the right to enjoy the products of a property, for instance the fruit of a tree), and abusus (the right to damage or destroy). If one has only the first two rights, this is referred to as usufruct, and is not considered true possession under the law. The defining feature of true legal #property then, is that one has the option not taking care of it, or even destroying it at will.”

Property is a social relationship—an agreement about the use and disposition of stuff.
Beyond what you can grasp in your own hands, everything you own is by agreement with other people who could, but don’t, take for themselves the things you’ve claimed.
Wealth is a subset of property, a social relationship of *command.* Wealth is the social ability to command and compel other people to bring you things you want or labor for you at your direction.
If wealth is a relationship of command, then poverty, its inverse, is the state of being subject to command.
I was able to get these facts in front of the jury thru skillful legal maneuvering but generally a tenant’s wellbeing & the harm caused by an eviction are facts juries are prohibited from hearing because the #law wants to pretend that the only relevant issues is adjudication of who is the rightful owner of the possessory interest in the #property (3/x)
