The Mental Disease of Late-Stage Capitalism
Joe Brewer

I’m almost sure I would be homeless if I lived in the U.S. When we moved to Australia in 1985, we were able to afford to buy a home. Wages for laborers were high enough to live in. I’m currently living in Cambodia and am able to take care of a whole family on the money I make freelance writing. Go back in time to the 1950s and it was possible to own a home in the US on a single income, as my parents did. In the 60s, I attended college for free. It’s been downhill ever since in the US.
