Who are they?
Normally, apparent folk who are overwhelmed by the system. The “system” is the construct the humans have erected which is designed to instill the confidence that “humanity alone, can and will find all the answers to its needs, its lack.”
In the mean while, it is this same construct which has created the homeless.
Expectations, ideals which do not sit well by the invalidated.
Unavoidably, this must be so. The measure doth cut its swath. If you can keep up, good, if you can’t then we will provide a retrieval system (part of the construct, see..) which will ensure that you obtain some resources to reprogram you, and hopefully bring you back into the fold.
Churches or “none profit” (self created) other entities then tap into funds supplied by the Societal conglomerate which, undergoing some “societal conscience” pressure, create subsidies for this eventuality (when dregs, and dross are produced; “the homeless”).
The construct, is goal oriented, just like those utopic staged films of a SciFi nature. A sort of self encased, self defined existence. Rules, however, rule there.
Gauges designed to weigh you. Assess you.
Our world system….
Though it has diversification, considered eclectic, and Nouveau, it fosters the wellbeing of its less fortunate, and lesser and trite body of citizenry.
Yes there is admixture tolerated, for the great “bedfellow” stocker, the “glue” we might say, which aids in cementing toleration, is drugs, addiction aiding substances.
Drugs and Alcohol smooth the platform so that all kinds are able to fellowship, the rich, the powerful and the partying kind.
Bonds are created which aid this entity to morph into; God knows what…..
But the homeless have created the agencies which, with trickle down mercies, find islets of societies which house them, supply hygiene and other needs.
Among those needs; clothes, food, and education. The goal is to recycle them back into the loop.
Outfit them to be able to move out and earn a living and pay for their own shelter.
The attendees there, for the most part are the homeless themselves who fulfill some criteria which would classify them as able to run the place.
The exceptions are the Medical Staff, and the Teachers.
A lot of the better donations get disabused of intended objectivity. The top of the chain get to swindle and remove them. Some, make money off of the gifts (witnessed first hand, pilfering of expensive food items, such as costly meat and fish).
I speak of Sundry Products, televisions, clothing and other donations the public bring to these places. Even at the stage of the Churches. First pick is had.
Success rate; five percent.
They get recycled right back into the homeless shelters.
No, there is some good. Yes some joy, some warmth felt at these places. Witnessed it first hand. Fond memories.
What’s the difference.
Your brother squeezes you out through the pressure of quotas, and expectations at the top, and then at the bottom, your brother who is down with you, squeezes you out again.
Human frailty. A fallen creation trying to erect some “Image” of Wellbeing. A effigy which some gather together at the town square and burn in protest. The truth will not be swept under the rug.
Regardless of all the presentations of goodwill at this time of the year, which fill our hearts with warmth, as a whole we are flawed.
Only God is perfect, and worthy of sentiment. Let’s settle up with Him. Give Him His due. Clear that slate, and then we can have fruits worthy of repentance that procure for us the power not to defraud one another.
