110. You have an unfortunate way of saying things ....
That's where the battle should be fought. Helping the homeless is noble but it will not change the system. It's equivalent to treating the wounded instead of fighting the war.

From what I see of this movement it is certainly not "foolish" in any way.

And the comments about capitalism were made by ME -- not the movement.

Indirectly, homelessness is certainly connected to capitalism/corporatism/elitism --

however, no one but YOU has suggested that spotlighting homelessness will "do away with

capitalism" -- !!

Up is not down -- strawmen are just there to be knocked down.
