and/or, is this the kind of thing that a centralized state would love to offer those its policies have made homeless: open-air prisons for the mind and body. Once again, I don’t know what to think. While I’m glad for the individuals who are now safely “off the streets,” I do wonder about their internal freedom to think their own thoughts, especially when so-called “mental health” is offered to make and keep them “normal,” i.e., compliant. See the many posts on this subject by Jon Rappoport. It’s something I recognized way back in the ’60s, when I was studying bodiless academic philosophy and discovered that my mind and body were starting to connect and interpenetrate. Oops! Can’t have that! Department Chairman: “What’s wrong with you? You used to be such a good uptight graduate student!”
Above all, it’s crucial to wake up and stay awake during these fraught times when centralized solutions offered to problems may bring us not only more of the same, but infinitely worse. Note the American military, which keeps creating new and real terrorists with its brutality against people it calls terrorists, including, my friends, us, when and if we get out of line.
So while this solution in Denver to homelessness has much to praise, it also raises red flags.
