Buying a house involves two simple steps:
- A Deposit – giving all the money you have right now
- A Mortgage – promising to hand over all the money you will earn in the future
All this for the sake of a roof over our heads. One of the most fundamental needs any life form requires for their offspring, for their partner, and for themselves, and this is the model our society has developed. “Give me everything you have right now. And the stuff you haven’t even earned yet? I want that as well!”
Our ancestors must be so proud!
