Take their control away by forcing them onto prepaid power (and/or gas) and paying any housing benefits to their landlords.
It teaches them that they have no control over anything and even takes the overview away of what gets paid when to who.
They become powerless pingpong balls that way.
It’s treating adults as if they are fiver-year-olds.
Alternative? UBI or pay everyone’s rent/housing and everyone’s energy and fix the rent amount (per person?) to stop its often predatory nature from making people homeless and/or poor.
