Our government and social system refuses to address the issue of homelessness in any holistic way. That person you pass on the street, keeps the workers on the straight and narrow. Must buy, must work, must suck it up and keep slaving away, must feed the economy all the best hours of the day and the best years of your life, because if not society has a special place for you the street. If you step out of line or if you just can't function then, forget it, you are treated like trash a public nuisance. They call it a homelessness problem but what it really is, is a failure of our society to treat its lowest member as a full human person.
