Down and Out in London, Berlin and Paris

I just don't understand how in some of the richest economies of the World, we can allow the plight of the homeless to continue. However, as the article shows, Paris is far "friendlier" to the homeless than London (for shame upon us)...

As a certified master in social studys I can tell you how the deal in germany is: If the person in question is of an age above a certain level (say 35), it is no longer of need in the neoliberalistic run for profits. The goverment only invests money in social work regarding juvenile delinquents, that they hope to turn around to become dilligent bees. Everyone else is human garbage! I tried to get anykind of job in a homelessshelter or similar, but to no avail. There was no money, all they are looking for, if at all, was volunteers. Now that the cold season is upon us, lets hope some of these unlucky peers find something warming to sleep and to drink. Something we take for granted every night.
Is it just me or did the boxed bumwine cork a little bit?

Indeed.

Many folks are a paycheck away from being there themselves. perhaps they ignore the downtrodden much as one faces away from a bad car accident: "it could be you next" sort of thing?
