    and then rented out. Don't look for home ownership to be a viable option for most Spaniards, and look for this same tactic to occur in the USA. It is part of the enslavement of the working class - take their homes.

        It's a natural instinct, to get strongly territorial about your "nest".  And when you rent, you're often barred from the simplest, STUPIDEST alterations to make a barren shell more liveable.  Condemned to white walls, forbidden any pictures that require so much as a pinhole to support, not allowed to keep pets . . . the lease I signed last month even dictated the COLOR OF MY CURTAINS.

        Personally, I can't see why anyone would rent by choice.  I certainly don't intend to do so for more than a year.   Renting at best means improving a property you can be tossed out of on a maximum of a year's notice; at worse to be forbidden to make necessary repairs yourself in a hovel that the landlord refuses to maintain properly.  Landlordism was the initial root of most modern evils.
