Where have I heard this before?

When I was hungry, you gave me to eat.
When I was thirsty you gave me a drink.
When I was naked you gave me your robe.
(When I was homeless you gave me a house.)
Now enter into the home of my father.

Christianity, from the BIBLE.

Problem with your world view is that
it is impossible to create a utopia
based on the efforts and intelligence
of humans by themselves.
Basic human nature is evil.

Home prices can rise higher than incomes can afford. Google "china ghost cities" to see it taken to even more extreme level. What happens is wealthy invest in real estate as a safe place to put money, keeping home prices out of reach of working people.

A first step towards a better humanity.

I understand people "jealous" about this "amazing opportunity" that the homeless of Utah have. but seriously, your way of thinking ain't getting us nowhere. For worse or better, society has changed because money has changed.

If it's most sustainable in the long run to keep people inside homes, you should realize that this will be beneficial for everyone and not fight against people which already have no power to begin with. Give them a chance!

There was at least one other thread about this that came up about a month ago..

Use google to search as ats search is a waste of time.

I'm confused as to why they were putting homeless people in jail.

Homeless people will often commit crimes for the express purpose of getting caught just so they can have a warm place to sleep and free food.

Further, homeless people commit other crimes out of need and desperation.

I followed all the links even went to the Utah gov site and could not find pictures of the homes. I suspect they are not homes but cement buildings and a big giant step towards agenda 21 style living quarters.

It states that as long as they get along with case workers and other tenants to a lesser degree, they can still be on drugs and other mind altering substances?

I would like to see the ground rules in writing, the actual contract that they sign before being accepted into the 'homes'...

Glad to know that there are people getting off the cold dangerous streets this winter, but to what end?

Very interesting thread.

Agenda 21 social experiment?
