Piglipstick (on my list of daily blog visits) has a post about the increasing crime of feeding the homeless. More and more, cities across America are creating laws that make it illegal for us to feed the homeless. To offer something warm to drink or give someone a sandwich. Some local politicians insist they're doing this for the "safety" of the homeless. That is disingenuous, and only said to appease the rest of the citizenry. Because of course, if these law makers cared about the "safety" of the homeless, there would be laws made to make it easier for everyone to have resources to feed the homeless, as well as finding shelter, etc. Instead, the reality is control. As it all is -- control. Control of all of us. Don't think for a minute it's just about controlling individual segments of society: the poor, the homeless, the unemployed, ex-cons, etc. We're all in this together. Don't be distracted by false divisions.
