Sam, I am not a right-wing person. I'm pro-choice, an atheist, (though I detest the term because it elevates what one doesn't believe, thus maintaining theism as the norm), and I could go on. I'm certainly not a partisan of either party. In fact, I have no allegiances to any group and consider all such allegiances to be intellectual liabilities. If one has any such allegiance, one will inevitably find oneself defending the indefensible because doing so also defends "my side." So, if you think I'm right wing, it just shows how far to the hard left everyone and everything has been pushed.

De-growth would be a disaster for environmentalism. The reason environmentalism can exist at all is that there are enough people with enough free time to worry about such things, things that have a wider scope in time and space than the immediate concerns of poorer people such as shelter, food, etc. De-growth is seen as a means of achieving the malevolent goal of equal outcome for everyone, which of course requires unequal treatment, i.e., the unequal application of laws. It is a profoundly negative idea that will require a totalitarian level of authoritarianism to "achieve." And once achieved, no one will have the time or the inclination to worry about the environment.

Read the history of Mao's China and the cultural revolution. Seriously, the fact that the right is wrong does not guarantee that the left are good.

People I have talked to and helped who sleep rough are well aware that there are shelters where they can sleep and receive care. But there is also theft in shelters, and disease, and on top of that many street people have mental problems that cause them to fear that which could be helping them. Higher taxes and a radical restructuring of the economy will not help them, just as giving to official charities doesn't help them. It is possible to help them by directly interacting, but even there only to a limited degree. To really help them, it would have to be done firmly against their will. You must know this also, unless the people you feed are not at the very bottom of their means and abilities.
