An Increase In Number Of Younger Generation Of The Homeless - Difficult To Recognize Them By Appearance Because They Are Well-Dressed


I wonder the young without skill or talent will have no choice but to go homeless or to be forced to work to death with the enticing carrot of full-time worker dangled in front of their eyes.
I want the young to think that “there is nothing in a city.”

Of course, however, a city is full of falsehood, deceit, fraud, exploitation, hypocrisy and fabrication.  If you live by deceiving others and lying to yourself, a city is very convenient.  This is because only such types of people get together there.
However, if you really want to live seriously, I would advise you to live in an environment with as much nature as possible.  Try to study about PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory).  You will find out that the environment with nature can make people and nature live affluently.  You’d better not aim at achieving success in life.  To chase after your future dream is an action that detaches you from nature you are enjoying.  I feel there are many people on Earth who seem to be reprobated by deities.
To tell the truth, however, I think it is humans that abandon nature and deities.

An Increasing Trend In Number Of Younger Generation of Homeless

News coverage by NHK has revealed that the number of people in their thirties or younger who sought for help from facilities across the country which provide support to so-called homeless people has exceeded 30 percent for the first time in last fiscal year.
Experts point out that there is an increasing trend in the number of young homeless people due to lack of access to support by the administrative organ.
With the enforcement of law to help homeless people become financially independent in 2002, Independent Living Support Centers for street people or so-called homeless people have been established in ten cities including Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya.  NHK’s news coverage on the Centers across the countries has revealed that 4,354 homeless people sought for support in last fiscal year and 1,421 of them, three more than in the previous year, were in their thirties or younger, who accounted for 33 percent of the total.

People in their thirties or younger accounted for 13 percent in the fiscal year of 2002, but the number has increased year after year and finally exceeded 30 percent for the first time.
According to Independent Living Support Centers, the number of old homeless people living on streets or in parks has decreased due to support provided by administrative organs, while the number of young homeless people has been on the rise.  However, the exact number cannot be grasped by public administration because they often live on streets or wander about Internet cafes or 24-hour eating places.

Professor Michiko Miyamoto at the Open University of Japan, who is well-informed about the poverty problems of youth, points out: “The reality of an increase in young homeless people has been backed up by figures for the first time.  It is difficult to recognize young homeless people by appearance because they are well-dressed.  Only a small number of people visit a support center.  If proper support for the younger generation is not provided, their poverty will continue over a long period of time.  It is necessary to immediately consider measures.”

There are the working poor, though not homeless, who sleep out at parks to save car fare.
They said that they go home only weekend.

Why are there homeless people though they can live on welfare?

Family restaurants and MacDonald’s used to be open 24 hours.  Recently many of them are closed at 5 a.m. once or they provide only take-out service at midnight.

Churches prepare meals outdoor for the homeless.
I wonder temples do the same thing.

I feel the temple is the most faraway place for the dead.

So, come to an Internet café in the neighborhood.
You will see really a lot of refugees!
They are young and old tramps.
I think there are many refugees at night wherever you may go.
