Although Palo Alto has only 15 shelter beds to accommodate roughly 150 homeless persons residing in the area, and the average cost of rent is 2 1⁄2 times the national average, the city has chosen to make sleeping in one’s own private vehicle a crime punishable by a $1,000 fine or up to six months in jail. — National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, No Safe Place:  The Criminalization of Homelessness in U.S. Cities  (via freedomfromwant)

Pretty standard for rich Bay Area towns overinflated with obscene tech bubble money. Well and in awful places like Florida.

This applies to many jobs. 

Riiiight.

This applies to our fucking civilization as a whole right now.

We’re all handed small, wrapped, pre-portioned existences.  Unless we’re one of an elite few we’ve got no real hopes of breaking out of that; we might shift a spot to the right, or to the left, but we’re still on the same level.  Everything is owned.  There’s nothing new left to find, barring the sciences.  I’m speaking of material things, places to explore, treasures to find.  We’re born into having to pay rent to keep ourselves alive, or else we end up in prison or dead.

How the fuck would you deal with it?

I just wish the fucking revolution would hurry the fuck up so that I could flush my stash down the toilet once and for all.
