The recent story about a woman’s “tent mansion” near the city’s Space Needle vividly illustrated how a contingent among the homeless chooses to live in the streets. “We don’t want to change our lifestyle to fit their requirements,” the woman told newscasters for a KIRO7 report, explaining how she and her boyfriend moved from West Virginia to Seattle for the “liberal vibe,” repeatedly refusing shelter. “We intend to stay here. This is the solution to the homeless problem. We want autonomy, right here.”
The homeless mythology is not merely anti-factual; it’s also a textbook example of what sociologists call pathological altruism, or “altruism in which attempts to promote the welfare of others instead result in unanticipated harm,” as engineer Barbara A. Oakley explains. The city’s compassion campaign has devolved into permissiveness, enablement, crime, and disorder. Public complaints about homeless encampments from the first three months of this year are an array of horrors: theft, drugs, fighting, rape, murder, explosions, prostitution, assaults, needles, and feces.
a cultural utopia… soon they will need a fed-gov bailout.
Good, keep it in cesspool seattle. This is what the utopia sick socialist look like. They can start eating zoo animals just like venezuela.
Cities are worthless in todays Joomerica.
We used to build and make things, now metropolitan areas are havens for criminals and illegals who collect social handouts to survive.
don’t buy into the propaganda. the only reason Venezuela has economic woes is because they are being ATTACKED by FED jews with sanctions because they are trading oil in non-US FED Jew-Dollars.
