: I think there is a way to stop homelessness and its to do with people having properties to themselves. There are 1000s of peoples houses all over the country with spare rooms. They shouldnt just stay empty, there should be a law that if you have an extra room then you have to let a homeless person have it, otherwise youd be leaving them on the streets which is just not fair.

: If you try and get out of it then you should be fined or your house possessed so that homeless or poor people can have it.

: that would be fair, what say you comrades?

Fair fair fair. That's all that you talk about. Lifes not fair, never has been, never will be. The only way to make a perfect world is to make people perfect, and forcing people to be perfect would not be a quck route to a perfect world. Sure, people have some empty rooms, but maybe they're only empty for part of the day. What if someone works(the critera for owning a residence) and doesn't use their house during the day. Does that make it "fair" for a bunch of bums to make them sleep on the street? Fair is to get rid of regulations and loet people do pretty mcuh what they want, and each will get what his work yeilds.
