As a civil and caring democratic society, which prides itself in being number one in quality of life, respecting the dignity of each human being and basic human rights as spelled out in the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, why are there people who do not have the basics of such shelter and security?

May I suggest that this whole problem of homelessness is being addressed by an attitude of scarcity and charity rather than with an attitude of abundance and social justice.

The problem is not one of affordability, the problem lies within the system we call the free market capitalistic system of democracy.
