So imagine you've been out of work since March and you're many months behind on the rent.

You aren't going to be able to defer payments forever. You're struggling to eat and pay to keep your phone and internet service. You walk out in the morning and your car is gone. Not because it was stolen, but because it was repossessed.

Is $600 going to help you get back on your feet?

(I saw a repo truck last night, taking away my neighbor's car.)

I wonder what the reason is that the neighbor has been kept away from work since March.  My guess is a government lockdown, either directly or indirectly.

If the neighbor was able to go to work and earn his own money, he wouldn't have to compete with Indonesian gender studies for scraps.

Once you’re past the event horizon, there’s no coming back.

Correct.  Once you’re past the event horizon there’s no coming back, you'll be depending on government for the rest of your wretched life--that's what they are counting on.

People situated such as Star Moron milestogo are the victims if:

* Government mass shutdowns that accomplished nothing;

* Government tyrannocrats constantly moving goalposts so as to prevent full re-open and shut down creative solutions;

* In some (hopefully few!) cases, their own choices not to explore other means of income.

Did Star Moron milestogo ever propose a "solution"? Or is (s)he simply stirring up @#$%?
