"It's a difficult question."
You will never work out the complications of homelessness until everybody has been given the right to choose whether to live in a home or whether to live otherwise - making it "complicated" is the excuse the Establisment gives for not being able or willing to do that
Yes, but by that argument, there are people who wish to live otherwise. It is then very difficult to complain about the problems of homelessness if there is no way for the 'establishment' to distinguish between the two types of homelessness (choice/circumstance).
