Why is homelessness perpetuated yet ignored? Why are we intentionally misrepresented so we will be misunderstood? Why are we not represented from within our community and why are we not given options other than Homelessness=Free Ride (and total control by the system) or Get Housed=Legitimacy?
There is a ploy, a con involved and like most of normal society people not associated with business or law enforcement or crime are not even aware there is a deception involved.
The missing information is that our society targets the homeless and the poor as a demographic, forget about Targeted Individuals.
We are lumped into one group in public perception and then judged by what seems to be either group or personal opinion which includes morality.
To some its immoral to allow one's self to be so inefficient and lose self reliance, to not work and to be without material gain.
Others judge us according to what seems like Christian morality or just old fashioned decency.
To many no matter where their opinion of us hails from we are indeed misunderstood as we are misrepresented.
This peasant class if you will, street people have been present since ancient times. I am not educated enough to know if tribal societies lacked such a group due to the all inclusive nature of their society as well as its small size. But empires based on Rome and a fuedal system do seem to have such populations.
The problem is that in a global world, everyone had started minding everyone else's business, the govt has become more involved with homeless people. Determined to apply their social work ethic to an age old problem of such societies: to get us all housed and END homelessness.
Doing so not out of wholey wanting to care for people but partially to stop taxpayers from whining about free loaders. And local business owners I assume as well.
One problem is that homeless people have become bold and numerous. Crack cocaine along with the gangsta mentality being popularized has been partially responsible for this. The other factor is the system itself getting involved: many homeless are coddled to the point where they never learn they are unwelcome and have to stay in the backround of society.
Many homeless are severely mentally ill- you can thank Reagan for that as many institutions were closed by his administration. Why you ask? Why would the govt want to assist crack dealing gangs to fund a covert war action in a far off land (Iran Contra)?? Becuz its part of social engineering. Simple cause and effect.
There are very plausible theories from those of us familiar with these technologies and these actions rooted in Proj Paperclip etc as to why one would want to release mental patients into public spaces: Reagan had proposed what is essentially the gang stalking system to openly manage prisoners and the mentally ill. There was such outrage that it was quickly pulled from his campaign platform. Looks as if it was simply implemented without such public notice.
Also the homeless that are stresssors on any community and disruptive will motivate people to fund gentrification, gated communities and with 9-11, anti terror funding to be used to protect communities.
The reason these options are attractive to the powers that be is becuz it makes alot of people alot of money. If the homeless were not let lose on society, fed crack, mingled with SEVERELY mentally ill disruptive human beings and then whoever else traumatized then harassed constantly into feeling persecuted for being houseless or a transient, then you might actually have a managable situation. Also the refusal of the powers and the system to suggest or alllow inventive, creative solutions such as true representation of distinct homeless demographics, encouraging representation from within the Homeless community as well as homeless hostel type situations for high to med functioning homeless to get off the street and be more self sufficient and independent than chronic shelter living or traveling shows a purposeful and intentional oppression of the Homeless population.
Forget about the ACLU suing cities like San Diego for not providing enough hand outs and free resources, lets start legal action for the continued insistence on oppressing this population by insisting they become housed and managed by the system slavishly as well as not ALLOWING any sort of alternative to being managed by the system and forced fed hand outs.
Charity groups is one thing, its their choice, they enjoy providing for the needy, many as part of their religious belief. I suspect communities often provide the bare minimum through the city/state in order to simply keep such people away from what is Their's that they value.
The human and civil rights abuses that continue to be perpetrated upon the Homeless population continue due to a campaign of psychological warfare and propaganda that brainwashes the public to PERCIEVE that freeloading, crack smoking crazy lazy drunks deserve disregard until they become proper Calitalists.
And I would buy into that too...if I didn't know the reality of the situation.
Whistle blowers and Targets as you know are harassed into this population nowadays, I think becuz its just not as easy as decades ago when you could simply frame someone to prison.
There are many intelligent talented people such as inventors who historically seem to have been victimized by covert warfare- thus the cliche of dying 'penniless and insane'.
Not all homeless are unfortunate. Some are living off the system, some are rotten human beings and certain shelters gangs are either involved in skimming funding, actual funding or running operations out of the shelter. White collar crime and organized crime are more reasons why the homeless scene remains a mystery and its desired the public stay mystified, hateful and aloof or conned with constant sob stories and little violins.
Criminals need places to hide-smart ones who work with local crime/law enforcement even city officials.
Homeless people are thus abused, scapegoated and intimidated as a source of profit. I believe this is why so many whistleblowers are targeted in shelters. Anyone with any intelligence who is outspoken is treated badly. And a good number of clients are indeed helped ensuring there are a population of people who cannot say enough wonderful things about this or that shelter.
People who become travelers or sleep outside usually have the intelligence and individuality to get mobbed by shelter rats as well as staff who use a lot of prison type psych tactics to control a large population with little staff.
The linked article above has one sentence that I appreciated being said: we are indeed shamed, demeaned and misunderstood.
This is why its so convenient to chase TIs into this level of society. Per usual the shadow system gets the public to do their work for them without them understanding what's really going on.
