On human needs

Sat 1 Sep 2018 by mskala Tags used:

What if our response to homelessness was to have activist marches against the toxic idea that housing is a right; to lecture homeless persons on how evil they are for feeling entitled to housing; campaign for their exclusion from job opportunities, education, and any other path that might allow them to gain access to housing under their own power; and (for the most compassionate of us) try to help them understand that not having shelter, is okay and doesn't make them bad people?

Totally agree (and yes, I also get that it's an analogy). I'm glad I have interesting hobbies.

Oh, so this is the strawman argument that was mentioned in the entry of March 25. I was wondering about that. Passive-aggressive, too!

No, my March 25 posting was - as I said - about a general pattern of incomprehension, not about only one case. As for the present posting, I only wish that this wasn't real.
