Poverty is a social crime. A harm willfully committed by those in power against the masses who are not.

And consequently, so is suicide. And every other ill that results from poverty.

It would cost a mere 1% of the US’s annual military budget to totally end homelessness. We don’t have a lack of resources problem in the US. We have an entrenched inequality problem.
