    Because rent is harder and harder to pay each year as it goes up and salaries don't match the cost increases.

    But why should others be able to limit how much money another can make on their own property? Should others be permitted to limit your earnings?

    Government telling private citizens how much they're allowed to charge. That is a fascist concept and NOT a concept of free-market capitalists, you know, the political right.

    Avoiding homelessness is more important to me than questionable concepts of free market capitalists. You are apparently not affected by high rents.

    Unfortunately some believe that it is usually the landlord who is the fascist

    but of course slumlords are dictators

    Landlords use to be warriors who protected the land and the villages

    Today they are Lord of the Flies as they attempt to govern those whose who would live on their land

    Probably Trump see himself as the Lord of the Flies as he tries to govern but seems to be failing miserably as you can keep some of the people happy at the expense of making the other unhappy.

    It is easy to be a fascist but hard to be a leader
    Failure is the only option

    That's what you sign-up for when you become a residential landlord because someone fucked-over renters before you, which is the birthplace of all regulation.
