I blame Central Banks for creating a system that necessitates the elimination of the human element due to cost. Tech would have eventually replaced humans, but the acceleration of the trend with no replacement jobs for the humans is causing the economic system to cannibalize itself and leave many people out in the cold.
We pretend that Tent Cities do not exist. Why? Because truly fixing the problem requires nothing less than a Paradigm Shift that would threaten the Status Quo.
There are many more types of Poverty than just Money alone. The most basic needs include Food and Shelter, but are not the only needs. Individuals may survive on basics alone, but without the human willingness or ability to interact, the society dies. This can be as small as two isolate neighbors who no longer speak to each other based on a disagreement. Together they form a small society, and even if they are still alive, the society dies when they refuse to communicate or interact. They wont reproduce and thus, go extinct. Societies is multi-generational. Societies are also collectives of smaller communities that interact.
"When workforce training replaces education, society dies."
I dont remember who said that. That is what is happening today in the US.
