With your permission, I’d like to take you on a video tour of what has to be the most gorgeous Homeowners Association in the world. The views are spectacular, tourists come from around the world to see it. The people get along with each other, no arguments, no liens, no lawsuits, no angry homeowners carrying guns into board meetings and mowing down board members. No lawyers, it’s Heaven on Earth.
Oh, a few things I should mention: the air and water are pretty polluted, in fact, one of the most polluted on Earth. The people are dirt poor, medical care is almost non-existent, but there’s virtually no auto traffic. Ah, and I should mention that the government is Communist China. Communism, where the whole American HOA movement is heading. Communism puts the commune in community. Still, enjoy the video.
HOAs are tyrannical as they make and enforce the rules (owners really have little actual say in the matter). That is why they have always struck me as un-American, and I am always surprised that anyone defends HOAs.
