Homelessness is getting worse in the U.S. But why? Is it the escalating housing prices? Or is it something else?

The mentally ill need to be housed again so they as well as the general public will be safe again.

The truth movement is here, it will set you free, know the truth. https://youtu.be/6cYZ8dUgPuU https://youtu.be/2NYuxL78JKY https://youtu.be/boct07rstx8 Our government is a crime syndicate. USA is a corporation and we are slave products. They are poisoning us through the food supply, vaccine shots, fluoride in the watee. They are robbing us through the unconstitutional fiat money system not backed by gold. They are purposefully keeping us divided to make us easier to manage. 911 was an inside job set up by our corrupt government. Kennedy tried to expose them and was assasinated. The rabbit hole runs endlessly deep. Facts are all there to verify ladies and gentleman, its not conspiracy when its all backed by facts. Please open your eyes and see the truth. Refuse to consent. You consent when you knowingly choose to do nothing. Everything is designed to control us. If you think this is all conspiracy theory you do so because of years of programming and indoctrinatio They control all the media and will stop at nothing until they they have absolute control. Then they will reduce the population. Its all there in plain sight but you refuse even look.

All this mental illness is all lie to cover-up the injustices and atrocities on the American Homeless population due to Sanctuary Cities.

Word on streets, this is curse on us Americans that's why were homeless. I'm Indigenous and homeless, so are thousands of other communities in U.S. why? This is all sorrows, you can be rich only to be taken all your dollars away and then homeless.

Thank you for this excellent video. I recently watched one of the homeless in Japan, where the mentally ill are cared for and thought that we could tell a lot about different cultures by looking at the homeless. I spent some time in New York after Bellvue was closed and the community-based centres failed to materialize. It was horrifying to see the conditions of the many mentally ill homeless people.

Woooow this was not supposed to be about population control. Have a heart. You can still believe such a thing but every one has good times and bad times in their lives. The best any one can do is tighten your boot straps, work on the problem, and learn from mistakes, even if they weren't necessarily yours, there is always a way to improve. You know why I was homeless? My mom died, so I moved back in with my abusive dad to take care of my brother who was a minor... I had just gotten married... starting 2nd tri pregnant. Just found out from the dealings with death that my husband had more mental health probs than I knew. My dad beat me, my husband and brother stood up for me... My dad kicked me out. I had a miscarriage from being abused, it broke my marriage, meanwhile my apartment changed landlords and raised rent $300... I had to get room mates but they stole from me. Then eventually they brought weed over, idc, but then they turned to pills... I took care of myself the best I could and said no over and over again. It was less than 6 months since my mom had died, the hero of my life, my angel, my rock. My faith in god was shaken from the loss. I admit I had some troubles for a few months with addiction, but the I got through that not long through recovery, groups, therapy, self care, and cutting off bad associations. But the damage was already done. Each day I spent waiting in line for food or laundry was a day I couldn't get housing... It went on too long. But it passed and I learned. And I support so much more than myself.I work my dream job, support the community, inspire others, and try to connect with the best things in the world and amplify them whenever I can. Just because there are bad people in the world isn't to say it's worth giving up on the world or the good things in it. Keep your Shire in mind, eh? Prayers to anyone in need... May God bless you with what you need most.

It's weird that "chronically homeless" is called 1 yr+ here. In all the programs I joined for housing while I was homeless, they said it was minimum 3 yrs or 9 times in the past 7 years. Way different definition if you ask me. I was homeless for 2 years before I found permanent housing. Sure, it's nice to sleep on your friend's couch every once in a while, but unless it's long enough to earn a few pay checks, it's a bandaid fix. Most things are with homelessness, I've found.

70% of the homeless population are men. It is a very serious gender equality issue which is never part of the gender equality conversation. Homelessness goes unaddressed because it generally a male problem. When homelessness is addressed, it is often with a heartless measure to make these men even more miserable. “How Cities Use Design to Drive Homeless People Away Saying "you're not welcome here"—with spikes.” https://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2014/06/how-cities-use-design-to-drive-homeless-people-away/373067/ When the issue of homeless is addressed with compassion, the measures are limited to only helping womyn. “Portland to declare housing emergency to help homeless women” http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2015/09/portland_to_declare_housing_em.html

Because feminism controls the discourse of gender equality, the suffering of men is always ignored. It’s all down to a pervasive feminist approach: the practice of gender bias to determine who is eligible for empathy and help (womyn & girls) and whom to assign blame (men).

5:40 Well Duh.. if you give the homeless housing they by definition would not be “homeless”. There is a problem with your reasoning. Housing and health care are THE two big factors why normal people roll their ass out of bed every morning and go to work. Your answer is to just give it to these people. Well shit! Sign me up, I hate my boss anyways.
Thought Monkey (9 месяцев назад)
Nicely said.
Joe Klein (9 месяцев назад)
John Morris they don't work not because they're lazy or don't wanna roll their ass outta bed, they don't work because they have a mental disability most of the time. The ones that use drugs often have a mental disability. So it's not a "willing to work" issue, it's obviously a mental treatment issue. And housing doesn't necessarily mean an apartment, this could be counted as a rehabilitation center for the mentally ill/addicted.

The main problem is a lack of basic empathy and humanity. Policy makers will not set the good of the commoner over their own status or income. This problem can mostly go away, but those in power don’t care enough to do anything. This problem will never go away; we’ve had 200,000 years to figure out how to feel bad about a fellow human suffering, but the soulless self absorbed climbers are the ones making the decisions. If you examine every problem that shouldn’t be a problem, a gluttony for resource and power is at the root.

The homeless have it really good in America, thats the problem. They get money through begging, get fed by every church and even can get a bed if they want it. They choose to live on the streets to do drugs, thats the real problem all homeless do this. Homeless in LA have it good

Calcifer do not speak to me. Do not respond. Do nothing further to attempt to contact me. This is a simple, direct command. Quiet. Now.
Bennie Saying Things (9 месяцев назад)
Calcifer Silence, child.
Chelsea Baumgartner (9 месяцев назад)
There is both in the world. Gluttony exists. So does empathy. So does homelessness. So do homeless outreach programs. It's not all good or bad either. In my city, billions of dollars have been voted to go into ending homelessness by setting up more low-income housing and mental health programs, but only the minimal amount has ACTUALLY been given. In my city, it gets close to when they're supposed to be built, and 100 thou is given to homeless programs and train hoppers, while 900 thou is put into new high rises and condos for the tourists pouring in. Tons of people care, it's mostly the 1% looking out for each other that turns that money into condos instead of shelters and apartments.

Calcifer My solution is a fundamental change in the goals and priorities of individual Americans and the United States as a whole. My solution is a society that has a fundamental basis in cooperation and sharing as opposed to competition and avarice. Sesame Street. My solution is for us all to stop acting like children and start acting like children. I never said nothing is being done; some of those who can are out there beating back the darkness and that’s great, but I believe a more cooperative spirit would curtail the need for a lot of it in the long term. I don’t have numbers, I don’t have a plan in any concrete sense, and I have nothing to pray to. I am left with monkeys burning down each other’s libraries since antiquity. Solution? A fundamental change in humanity as a whole.
