It is due to addiction and insanity.
When we think of the Left as being a disease, we need of that disease as a kind of permanent immaturity...to think of it as a decision (usually the result of brainwashing) to remain childlike in one's understanding of life.
It seems that wisdom (or lack thereof) of the people on the Left is limited to a superficial understanding of life and reality. When they dig down, they see the real reasons for life's problems is complicated. And the solutions to those problems always requires maturity and self-discipline both on the part of those understanding the problems and those afflicted by them.
And when they begin to understand the complicated things, they begin to move away from the Left.
In fact, you might say that coming to an understanding of the complications of REAL life is very much akin to being "mugged by reality." The result is a reduction in idealism and an increase in conservatism.
“The reason for homelessness is, with some exceptions, not because of a lack of homes.
It is due to addiction and insanity.”
My wife has worked in the mental healthcare field for some 30 plus years. She comes home often telling me how these people simply DO NOT give a rip about anything other than the next fix. They dont get it? They go off the rails. She has actually had to go to the Salvation Army to get shoes for some of them. Walking around on the streets of the desert southwest in the summer without shoes. Can you imagine?
BTW, most mental healthcare institutions? They are a scam for sucking up public money and social security. They could give a rats ass about the welfare of these mentally challenged and druggies. That is why my wife had to go to the Salvation Army for shoes.
Out of 100 of these people, about 10 actually want help.
The people in question are not homeless. They have chosen to live in tents
The people living in tents are squatters on public lands
