Homelessness in the SF Bay Area

 

It makes me sad that as a society we are continually trying to criminalize poverty, while we create the very conditions that undermine the ability of people to sustain themselves with productive employment for meaningful wages. Until the time comes when we engage in a system of economic and financial stability for all, we will have to live with homelessness and other residual symptoms of capitalist over-consumption.

Last month’s elections confirm that many San Franciscans don’t want to see homeless people on their streets. Unfortunately, we can’t vote our way out of this problem.
