Elvira> Re: Outlawing Homelessness...

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009 ~ Mexican Independence Day @7:40 PM-PST

Remember Black Panther George Jackson?!? He once wrote about the idea that the true revolutionary must reconcile his life to the fact of his being an outlaw. Revolution is technically against the law, the supreme act of the outlaw ~ the stuff of sedition. Corporate capitalism systematicallly manufactures its own foes, its own enemies, its own gravediggers, its own outlaws. Corporate capitalism creates outlaws!!!

Gangs are growing far beyond the borders of the inner cities and swelling their ranks more and more in Amerika's suburban areas and small towns.

Mentally, as humane liberationists, we need to juxtaposition formal U.S. laws and U.S. jurisprudence next to natural spiritual laws that uphold the sacredness of humane life and the integrity of the humane being. These natural-spiritual laws have been among and practiced by people for centuries, before there was even a so-called U.S.A. (which is actually more of a D.S.A. {Divided States of Amerika).

Why do we have laws? Who enforces the laws? Who writes today's laws? It is surely not the masses of people or their authentic leaders. Our legal laws are enacted by our so-called elected officials. We should know that electoral politics as practiced inside the United States are corrupt, twisted and governed by the highest paying campaign contributors.

Laws are made to give sensible structure to people's lives, to avoid all out social chaos and mass mayhem. Nowadays there is a lot of chaos and mayhem. Nowadays there is a lot of insanity running rampant in society and perpetuated by our elected officials from the President in the Oval Office and outward across the globe.

We have ~ as U.S. taxpayers ~ spent trillions on the Iraq War, which the U.S. has lost by the way; now U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill for the Afghanistan abyss ~ the Achilles Hell of the Obama Regme {remember Afgthanistan Won against the former Soviet Union before its collapse}; we spent who knows how many billions on the corporate bailouts in the hopes of saving the corporate economy from the brink of an all out bankruptcy and there seems to always be plenty of money for the Amerikan Killing Machine and the Amerikan Concentration Camp System!

Yet, we cannot seem to marshal the fundamentals to help homeless refugee families inside the United States or help the millions of millions of refugees throughout the world.

For examples ~


Who is a refugee?
A refugee is legally defined as a person who is outside his or her country of nationality and is unable to return due to a well-founded fear of persecution because of his or her race, religion, nationality, political opinion, or membership in a particular social group. By receiving refugee status, individuals are guaranteed protection of their basic human rights, and cannot be forced to return to a country where they fear persecution.

In 2008, there were 15.2 million refugees around the world, including 4.7 million Palestinian refugees, and it is estimated that 80 percent of refugees are women and children. According to the UN Refugee Agency, the leading countries of origin for refugees in 2007 were:

  • Afghanistan: 2.8 million
  • Iraq: 1.9 million
  • Somalia: 561,000
  • Sudan: 419,000
  • Colombia: 374,000

Who is an internally displaced person (IDP)?

Internally displaced people (IDPs) have been forced to leave their homes as a result of armed conflict, generalized violence, or human rights violations, but unlike refugees they have not crossed an international border. Although internally displaced people outnumber refugees by more than two to one, no single UN or other international agency has responsibility for responding to internal displacement. As a result, the global response to the needs of IDPs is often ineffective.

In 2008, there were an estimated 26 million people displaced internally by conflict. The largest populations of internally displaced people are found in:

  • Sudan: 4.9 million
  • Colombia: more than 3 million
  • Iraq: 2.8 million
  • DR Congo: 1.4 million
  • Somalia: 1.3 million

The homeless inside the United States are our domestic refugees. The so-called 'social safety net' is tattered and torn up with gaping holes through which millions of people fall into the social cracks of this crumbling civilization. I witness daily the great depression of 2009. Grown men and women without a dime in their pockets, many of whom have worked for decades. Surely something is dreadfully and drastically wrong with the way things are going now.

The best way to stop domestic terrorism is to ensure domestic survivalism for our own people living here now inside the United States by recognizing, addressing and meeting the basic survival needs of the masses of people. Many people are losing their grip on connected reality, are literally going mad and becoming increasingly insane.

Some people figure that the only way to make it through life nowadays is to become outlaws!!!!

Outlawing Homelessness ~ By Kristen Brown

In the past decade, cities have increasingly moved toward enacting and enforcing laws that specifically criminalize homelessness in response to their concern about the use of public space. Cities enact and enforce these criminal laws as "quick-fix" solutions to remove homeless people from sight, rather than addressing the underlying causes of homelessness. This criminalization trend has been documented in reports by the National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty since 1991...........
