Homeless in New York

And now the headlines in this weeks papers are saying the homeless in New York City shelters have to pay rent. What next? Is this not similar to some stories about people in prison have to pay rent? No one is free while others are oppressed. If only every one who needs a home could take one and squat the land and no one would have to pay rent to lords of the land and everyone could live free. Who's idea was it that the land, a basic necessity of life, is for sale anyway? And what if you do not have money and cannot afford to pay rent, will you become homeless? And for what reason am I thinking of that verse in the Bible, "And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." Luke 9:58. And what does this have to do with a No Police State?
