I don't think a high % of homeless are simply making a lifestyle choice....


There are certainly some, many of them younger folks living off the urban land. But far more are people who just can't make their lives work, whether its drugs, mental illness, lack of job skills, inability to present themselves, medical problems, disorganization, accidents, bad family history, and so on. It can be hard to grasp for us working folks with lives of plenty, but some people just can't figure it out on a consistent basis. And that's harder on them than on the rest of us who have to see them in our public spaces.

And yes, many of the anti-maskers and anti-vaxxers may have mental illness and deserve our sympathy. But they should still get vaxxed and wear their friggin masks where appropriate if they wanna fully participate in the community who's health they are threatening.
