It's published on Medium (not my fault) but anyway this is a superb article about the #UK's broken land 'system', and how it structurally impoverishes almost everyone - except the people who are already wealthy.

How can we all despise landlords and yet there be no housing coops? Spread the love, spread the ownership, spread the future. Start a housing coop!

I don't want to contribute to libre kernel that nobody uses, I want to work on the libre kernel that EVERYONE uses.

It's kinda difficult to align the numbers to houses after the fact. A survey with StreetComplete to re collect the address may be easier
