While I am a firm believer in the adage that we are our brother’s keeper, and that as a society, we are defined by how well we take care of those who for many reasons may end up on the street or in the care of societies doing great work in Victoria. I am also of the belief that we need to separate them from those who would take advantage of what we as society have to give, thus detracting from limited resources.
Do we have a homeless problem? Yes.
Are there those that abuse our generosity? Yes.
The Welcome mat can only be extended so far. I think we are at that point.
