    No, I'm fine with them, but it's not really like I feel strong emphaty towards them. Nevertheless, I would like it best if they were not homeless, everybody would benefit from the lack of homelessness.

    Of course, if we're talking about those homeless that scream at you if you don't give them money, then I'm not that much pleased by them, but luckily it's not a big social problem in Italy, especially in my zone.

    Ha ha, it's hard to feel empathy towards them when they creep you out.

    Can't you feel empathy toward the idea of being homeless?

    I have sympathy for the ones who are there due to circumstances beyond their control but not at all for the ones who wound up there because of lifestyle choices.

    Er. You don't come here often, I suppose.

    As for the topic - I don't have a problem with the homeless per se. Odd thread.

    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.
    People are afraid of the homeless.
    If you help them, they stick.

    It is the opposite.
    They vanish only if you help them.

    Most people cosmetically help them. If that much.
    They do not like it when the homeless stick around.

    The conservatives in America say it is not for the state to take care of the poor.
    It is for the individual.

    The individual does not take care of the poor in America.
    Responsibility is a collective enterprise.

    Historically, a collective enterprise is a clan. A large family.
    Industrialisation scattered the clan?

    Not in Japan, or China.
    They do not have homeless people in the street.

    There is always a way out, some people are not prepared to go that far.
    Excuses are embodiments of your inability to try or weakness of mind.
    I have been poor, and I have made my own way.
    You say they can't pay their credit card bills, why are they so big?
    They don't have a job? There are ALWAYS jobs, some are just not acceptable to peoples false high standards of themselves.
    Some homeless people prefer being homeless. The enjoy the freedom and having no bills to pay. They just get their money from begging.

    I do not hate the homeless, but I hold no empathy for them, they are what they are and whether it is or is not a design of there's where they are it is their responsibility to get out of it.
    This world is mine - in time.

    No.. because that would not make sense at all, there is no underlying basis for me to hate them at all, and even then it doesn't make sense to hate person based on their dwelling status. However i am not inclined to sympathy either.

Our horses are swift, our arrows sharp, our swords like thunderbolts, our hearts as hard as the mountains, our soldiers as numerous as the sand. Fortresses will not detain us, nor arms stop us. Your prayers to God will not avail against us. We are not moved by tears nor touched by lamentations."

    Empathy, but I try only to talk with them or support them if they are selling something.
