Comments: Misfortune

I absolutely agree with your post, but I wanted to point out that there was a move for a tent city in Denver (globeville) a few years back:

They said (pg 5 of the pdf): "America's 1949 Housing Act promises 'a decent home and suitable living environment for every American Family'; and Denver's 1999 Housing Plan asserts that 'decent housing is a fundamental right'".

Anyway, I don't live in Denver anymore but there were a lot of well-intentioned socialists who believed this stuff.

So the concept is there, it's just waiting for your new governor to endorse it.
