Why Do We Have Homelessness?
Homelessness affects individuals and families alike. Given that the necessity of shelter is at the base of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, why does our society tolerate homelessness? Should proper housing be considered a human right or a benefit of hard work? Perhaps in a capitalistic society, homelessness is simply a market outcome affecting those who are irresponsible and need more guidance, rules, and structure in their lives. At its core, is housing the responsibility of individuals to provide themselves or society’s duty to provide? And most importantly, are the solutions to homelessness more about charity or simply delivering justice?
