Da Fuck, You Say!
Oh those pesky governments are at it again, and this time fucking (more) with the homeless.
British Columbia and the Feds are joining together to offer homeless people housing if they’ll partake in research studies. Criteria – you must be mentally ill. Besides this foreshadowing the rise of eugenics again, it’s a completley bogus move to:
1. Keep the homeless disempowerd
2. Continue delays on housing to penny pinch for the Olympics (suites in B.C. Housing have already been closed down for months with no start on the promised rennos that would take 4-6 months. Think, duh ya, da Glibs will rent out the suites for quadruple their value to Olympic visitors? Think maybe they’ll take those funds and allocate a portion of them to the homeless?
3. Yes! Let’s create more studies, thereby replicating the ones already out there – province and feds, go to the cloakroom, you can’t even cheat properly!
4. Would they even THINK to have the homeless create intentional communities where WE make the rules above and beyond existing common law? Oh no , couldn’t go the route of Portland’s Dignity Village and give power to the people. And what are some of their rules – no drugs or alchol within a block of the premises……yes, they came up with that on their own. AND a minimum of volunteer hours put in to the community. Think the prov and fed gangs would even THINK of letting people have empowerment?
It’s a disgrace and a sham. File this one under, ‘fucked up beyond belief”.
