    You guys took this personally in the first couple of pages didn't you?

    I don't hate homeless people, my two best friends from grade school are now homeless. They just hit up different houses to sleep at. Of course I don't live anywhere near a big city, so it's a slightly different story for homeless kids out in the midwest. There are some very kind people that will take in others like family.

    I don't think there is any shame living below the poverty line.

    People are sleeping in the streets because they not part of the circulation of money.
    In a sense, its the economies fault.

    Yet at the same time, we have capitalists who knows how money circulates in society, and sitting their ass off and get paid without work.
    The fear of poverty turns people into slaves of money.

    Not at all. If you feel sad for homeless people, you could eventually come to the position in which you hate them, cause you have to feel sad for them all the time and you hate feeling sad.

    My dad kept spending 10 euro to a guy who drunk himself to death. That's a reason to hate something / someone in my opinion.

    Unless that's the plan... /strokes chin evilly

    I mean, sure you could just bludgeon the bum to death in the middle of the night but sometimes a long, slow death is much more satisfying.

    Oh, I think I've seen that guy. Can't be too many of 'em!

    In Tokyo, they all sort of cower in shame in corners of certain parks, and never talk to anyone ever. It's a bit sad.

    The reason I say the topic is bizarre is that it asks the question in such a black-and-white manner.

    See I'd give them money on principle.

    I always had this fantasy about taking in a bum and cleaning him up and turning him into a socialite.

    Heart wrote a very good post, again.
    She has a rare gift. She knows what is what.

    There exists two kinds of successful people: The respectable and the not so respectable.
    I respect more the not so respectable. Only they are into fair play.

    The respectable people worry a lot. They worry about their money.
    They worry even more about their esteem.

    It is a question of values.
    A measure is about value.

    What is the measure of respectability?

    I was homeless once for 2 weeks and someone lent me and bf a van to sleep in. I was also heavily pregnant. I had never been so hungry in all my life.
    Not good.

    So if i do see someone homeless i will give them some change.
    There was some bloke that was always sitting in the same place on my way to work most days. One day i went to a shop and brought him a cup of tea and a bacon roll. He really appreciated it.

    Saying that though, i am weary of some people. A friends older brother used to go into town and pan handle. He was a student. That's just wrong.
