Essere allontanati da AirBnB e non saper perché

The part that’s especially poetic to me is that AirBnB touts a firm brand message of community and connectedness with their “Belong Anywhere” campaigns but the frightening reality is that any individual user is completely disposable, without a shred of appeal to due process. I’m really thankful that I wasn’t reliant on AirBnB income like so many of my friends. [link]

Sostituisci ad AirBnB un qualsiasi altro monopolio (Amazon, per dire) e il messaggio rimane uguale.
