Homeless people die earlier because they are feckless. They should receive no support from the state
Debate Rounds (2)
Someone is feckless when they make no investment in their own security.
Does the fact that someone is homeless constitute a dereliction of duty on their part? If so does the State have any responsibility toward people who are in such a situation or should they be punished by the withholding of all and any public funding?
The homeless are not just people without jobs, but veterans forced out of their homes. The homeless deserve help when it comes to food and shelter, especially from the state. The homeless are still a part of the state, a people of the state. We don't know. What if the homeless man on the street is really a veteran who fought for you in a battle over seas. That homeless man on the street could be someone who got PTSD just for protecting our rights. That homeless man deserves help. Deserves food and shelter and help from the State. The homeless aren't people who don't have jobs or homes, but have families. Some homeless people have families to take care of, but can't because they don't have the financial help that we do.
We have homes, food, financial help. So, why shouldn't the homeless?
