The Number One Problem with being Homeless!

My Biggest fear, That now as many more people daily join the ranks of homeless the idea of  providing housing of 100 50 20 or 1 housing unit at a time will continue on. Being as ineffective or more so because of the swelling number being added to our population daily. If we are in any way going to effect the ability of Men and women who are facing this struggle to change their lives and find a sustainable manageable way to keep themselves and loved ones sheltered and fed. We must first recognize the real problem that the homeless person faces.
The Number one problem with being homeless is, not a house. It is the inability of millions upon millions of people to see it as a societal problem and not one of a person and Their misfortune.
We live in a world where the interest of corporations and governments far outweigh the needs of the people. Where Men can be denied the use of lands they were born on, for what is presented as protecting the environment, or as a common good for all people(imminent domain) when only a select few truly benefit from these regulations Or environmental protections and the people really effected by the decisions of their governing bodies, face suffrage because of unsustainable lives in which we have been all forced to endure at the threat of annihilation  by our fellow man. simply to instill fear and rule over men.
If your Governments and policy makers in your lives could truly protect us there would be no poverty problem in developed countries. We in America would have already achieved sustainability and Our citizens would not be living in third world conditions on this continent. But we in America Live in a world of Isolation and one given direction by national media outlets, corporations and local, state, and national political interest which are now geared towards the continuity of governance rather than the continuity of life.
And the citizens of this system are simply trained to believe that the impoverished and the less fortunate in our society are simply victims of life and the failing economic times or disaster, when the real disaster is that Man has become an indentured servant and believes himself to be a tax payer and anyone outside this system is viewed as criminal non productive and a drain on the economy, a non contributing member of society.
So if we are in any way going to win this battle of homelessness it must not be in the concentration of our efforts to simply supply People with homes, But let us recognize people first as equal Human beings afforded the same right and protection as any and let us make our governing bodies first recognize the ability for people to lead productive sustainable lives as A Human right common to one and all.

  1. I agree with you:

    "But let us recognize people first as equal Human beings..."

    Semantics has always been important in human rights movements - I prefer the term "homeless PEOPLE" to "THE homeless" because "homeless PEOPLE" emphasizes the humanity of disenfranchised individuals/ families and not their condition.
