A thought on the Grenfell tower disaster

In a #Iibertarian or #anarchocapitalist society (not what #London has, atm), it would not have occurred. Why not? Because: when, in spite of continuous writings by inhabitants, the building isn’t fireproofed to their satisfaction, that may be considered a form of #aggression (risking fatal consequences). This would have been much more costly than using proper fire-proof materials, in the first place, or replacing the dodgy materials with proper ones.

Also, the people would have had much more choice in housing than the #government lets them have, so if one (very expensive!) housing structure remains unused, the owners wil go #bankrupt. Becsuse the owners couldn’t simply raise raxes to cover the cost of their mistake. Meaning all the housing space will be used at capacity, and no more than that will be built; this way #capitalism / the market reduces waste: because whatever’s left of Grenfell tower will now not be reused: all the materials & energy that went into it, have gone up in smoke; so #statism, is an ideology of (violent) waste.

The people could have moved out, without contractual consequences, because the building is (and remains) unsafe to live in. Thus costing the owners money.
