In a commodity culture, if you don’t have the Rothschild’s bank notes in your pocket, you deemed worthless, unimportant and discarded. This is the treatment of our homeless whose only crime is poverty.
With the rich hoarding ungraspable amounts of property, bumping up prices so unreachable by the average person, that even couples combined wages struggle to meet rents and even the basic mortgages.
The young of today have little chance of becoming independent and renting or buying a property unless they have wealthy families. For the rest of us, we experience the heavy weight of bureaucratic persecution, a degrading process and humiliating experience of not being able to afford a home.
It would be nice to break the monopoly of wealth excessiveness and property hoarding by the ruling elite with several homes, holiday homes and country retreats.
With excessive land scarcity also, and extortionate property prices, land is unavailable for the cheaper end of the housing market and no political expression whether red, blue, green with pink spots is pushing for social housing.
These sanctimonious pompous policies protect wealth and destroy those suffering poverty.
Our homeless have every right to shelter, but that shelter is no longer reachable, adequate or easy to obtain.
Their civil liberties are assassinated, with the death of their free speech and their democracy obliterated.
We need land reform where it is illegal for land and property to be hoarded. Hundreds of thousands of acres of land to be kept by elites who don’t need it, don’t use it and don’t even acknowledge this land.

Savage benefit cuts and soaring rents have sparked a homeless crisis, says a damning report.
The number of people forced to sleep rough rose 6% across England last year – and 60% in London since 2011.
Temporary accommodation is being overwhelmed – after a 10% rise in those seeking it last year. Bed and breakfast placements are also up, by 14%.
In total homelessness – which covers people in squats, hostels and shelters – has risen by 34% since the Coalition came to power, says the joint study by homeless charity Crisis and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation.
Some hidden forms of homelessness – including secret sharing and overcrowding – are also rising.
Overcrowding has reached 5% across England, 12% on average in London, but up to 25% in some areas.
The Homelessness Monitor report also blames the Bedroom Tax for causing severe hardship.
It reveals that it has led to a sharp rise in families falling into arrears, particularly in the Midlands and the North. The revelations came after it emerged the government had sneaked out plans to slash benefits even further.
George Osborne buried a £600million welfare cut in the small print of last week’s Autumn Statement.
