Don’t think about them.
You could become one of them.

The very existence of the 3.5 million human beings who experience homelessness each year in the United States reminds us how fleeting and unattainable the American Dream truly is, writes Jason Miller.

Don’t look at them. You could become one of them.

They forage in garbage dumpsters while heirs like the Waltons hoard fortunes large enough to sustain hundreds of thousands of people.

Don’t touch them. You could become one of them.

Homeless people are the antithesis of the American ideal. They are often impoverished, unemployed (or under-employed), unattractive, dirty, beaten down, and addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Kill them so you don’t become one of them.

If horribly misguided youths don’t eradicate our homeless population, the United States’ woefully inadequate (and rapidly shrinking) publicly-funded safety nets will leave homeless people wallowing in their misery until they are dead.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I am 99% certain that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as technology further advances, the possibility of transferring our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's a fantasy that I daydream about all the time.
