Election 2022: Do we even want to solve housing affordability?”

The Coalition’s policy will make sense to many people.

But once we lose the primacy of need in something like housing, we lose the ability to see how my accumulated investments might be depriving you of something essential. We instead demand to be left to our investments. So, politics now cannot take a dollar off anyone, or even look vaguely like it will. It’s tempting to call this a “no losers” brand of politics, but of course, that’s not quite accurate. There are losers. It’s just that they’re the people who are already losing. We take nothing away from them except their prospects.
