Liberals Begin to Revolt against ‘Rock Stupid’ Homelessness Policies

John Fund, National Review

Finding the right balance between compassion and personal responsibility in homelessness policy is incredibly difficult. Simply spending money on more apartments for the homeless only attracts more homeless and breeds corruption. Demanding that people get off drugs and alcohol and on to any prescribed medication they have invites howls of outrage and civil-rights lawsuits. That’s why it’s noteworthy that the citizens of liberal Denver finally said “Enough” to liberal plans to broaden the right of homeless people to live on city streets. It’s now time for reformers to realize that the public is yearning for answers and to propose tough-love solutions that address the root cause of the homeless problem, rather than sentimentalize it.
