Isn't it ironic? We spend every available resource on looking for lost hikers and climbers, who are out in the middle of nowhere, by their own choice - but we step over the homeless, angry at them. Maybe it's just that rural folks are more humanitarian. Or they strongly believe in the old imperial spirit of adventure and conquest, hi ho. Maybe homeless people remind urban people that they are pretty much stuck in a prison of the spirit. Otherwise, many urban people have their heads full of all sorts of good intentions. Someone should tell them: Being unreal is a big reason why people become homeless. Like: Expecting decency in a town without pity. If you're going to be unreal, at least be aware of chilling irony.*
* - I eschew the literal meaning of the word, "irony," which is based on contradictions occurring in a linear time. Time is not linear, unless you want to be selfish about it. In reality, time is spatial. It is everywhere. (And nowhere). So, it is perfectly OK to say that contradictions between things in space, (rather than time), are ironic. For another thing: It always takes the mind a wee bit of time to compare one thing to another. So. Irony is in the eye of the beholder. Reality is in the eye of the observer. Philosophy is the smile on a dog. The key is in a pile of my laundry.
