In an ideal world, none of us would have to pay rent. Landlords would not exist. Having a roof over our heads would be as free as the air we breathe. But we do not live in an ideal world. If you're an adult, you have to pay rent, in some form or another. Even if you live with your parents as a grown-up, you pay in the form of your privacy and judgment from your Tinder dates. Them's the rules.
But even though rent is an inevitable facet of a capitalist society, there are always going to be people who try to weasel their way out of paying it (no offense to weasels, who in their defense don't have to pay rent because they're weasels).
