Topics: Housing prices are making it increasingly impossible for ordinary Americans to find shelter. In 60 years this country has gone from fighting a war on poverty to fighting a war on the poor. Our government, corporations and the rich loathe the homeless because the homeless are a constant reminder that this entire system is a lie. It’s not working. So the only solution is to somehow make the homeless disappear. We are told the homeless are criminals. We are told it’s the homeless who need to be arrested, not the greedy landlords who created them. But the problem is homelessness, not the homeless. Americans must stop blaming the homeless for being homeless. The homeless are children, women and veterans. The homeless are Americans who can’t afford to get their mental illness treated. The homeless are people who can’t make ends meet on a minimum wage of $7.25 an hour. The homeless are people who can’t afford the rent. On Memorial Day we honor those who died serving our country, and those veterans who came home to no home. Also, how the fall of the Roman republic compares to this moment in American history
