There are reasons why people can't afford rent or can't get or maintain employment. I don't think anyone should get free or subsidized housing or welfare without participating in social programs that will help break this dependency and improve their lives so they can, if possible, function as independent adults instead of wards of the state.
I disagree. It is very simple Unthinking. The scenarios for a possible homeless state are incredibly varied. I happen to think private property and wealth extraction from banks and mortgage industries is about profit from payers for decades. They pay off the mortgage and are in their what? Sixties. They get ill and the Social Security check is low. Inadequate for keeping up with inflation. They do a reverse mortgage to survive and wind up losing the property when they die and it is not inherited wealth. The poor relatives are left with no property that is paid off. The banks win all the time. Banks are about capitalism.
If you think that is not capitalism you are foolish in your thoughts Unthinking.
I have hundreds of examples. You will lose them all. It is about capitalism. Period. The concept of the property is the priority over people in need of security after a lifetime of working and being productive. You can continue with lies all day and night. I don't care. You are wrong. Period.
Property should not be the priority. Human lives should be. But people need to be in a community that helps older people, children, and vulnerable populations be able to do routine maintenance on a property.
Your heartless ways I really dislike. It is unattractive in the extreme Unthinking.
