Does your country supply you with a home? Does your country actually hand out homes to all it's citizens?
No, it doesn't.
no but you can apply for state housing,
you go on a waiting list and if you are eligible you will be placed in housing.
the ownership of the house resides with the state,
and the people get shelter.
in our country it is considered a failure to have families starving and without shelter.
you could call it compasion but dont you dare call it anything else.
infact if you are sick and in need of medical asistence you can turn up at a hospital,
you will be helped and medical personal will attend to your needs
dont you dare call this anything but how a civilised people care for its people.
you are so afraid of the words you use it blinds you to the truth,
we are not socialists, we are also not cruel to our people,
new zealand has a min wage so does Australia so do many successful vibrant nations across the world.
yes we have homeless and people do go hungry, as in all advanced societies,
but our ideal is that human rights include food shealter and medical care.
and if you think about it,
that is just being civilised not some ISM
where is your compassion?
where is your humanity?
where is your heart?
are you so hardened to the world you can say "my way is the only way that works"?
a way that pits every man against his country man for survival?
because you can come here and see how it can work when people care for each other.
in a capitalistic society that recognises that if wealth disparity becomes to great,
the entire society collapses
