Being optimistic is a good and desired thing. Back in the sixties and since there have been building good housing for the poor and homeless. What happens in every case is ... the people inhabiting these new building know next to nothing about maintaining a property through normal living. Do not knock holes in the walls, break the windows, cleanliness, ... pride of having a nice place to live and hopefully good folks next door. etc, you get the idea. Instead it works out they pay nothing or very very little. Doubtful if they pay an electric bill. So there is no sense of ownership that comes when one provides for their self. Soon some breaks in and steals possessions, the police are slow or actually afraid to come to certain areas.
It seems simple. Give them a nice home and they will work to maintain it. NOT TRUE USUALLY. Here we have a program for handicapped Habitat for Humanity is such a program ... one of the client of the vet was given one of these homes, and the vet had occasion to take the young man home and the vet said it was almost new and it was a total mess already So it is not out of the ordinary for a person that has not been taught to care for things to continue to do what they have always done. they might give them an educational course in necessary upkeep and how to keep their home nice.

The program I’ve described in the above column has nothing, and I do mean nothing, to with compassion.
This is all about socialism and the redistribution of wealth.
“Compassion” and “politics” never belong in the same sentence.
Now, do I believe we should be compassionate and help charities voluntarily ? Absolutely and without question.
