I assume when you say “own nothing” that you’re referring to property.
At the moment is appears that corporates are trying to get us to buy as much stuff as possible and throw away the “old stuff”!
Just look at the requirements from Microsoft for running the new windows 11, they would consign almost all computer hardware over six years old to the bin.
At least the “right to repair” legislation is becoming law in some places
But property ownership should not be a climate change issue, but sardine housing would have a minimal impact on the environment compared to suburban sprawl.
Having said that, sardine living is not healthy and would lead to all sorts of social issues, there has to be a middle ground where smaller suburbs can be serviced by a decent PT system and not be car dependant
As it is, I agree that corporates with government support have completely hijacked the environmental issue to ensure that consumers continue to consume and discard as fast as possible, thus frittering away all their future savings and eliminating themselves from the “property owning classes”.
Property ownership is definitely reverting back to the pre-modern industrial era (19th century) when the only property owners were the professional/managers and above, ordinary salaried staff had no chance of ever owning property.
