Attacks on the Homeless Rise, With Youths Mostly to Blame, By AMY GREEN, Published: February 15, 2008, NYT

 

……..Nationwide, violence against the homeless is soaring, and overwhelmingly the attackers are teenagers and young adults. In Florida the problem is so severe that the National Coalition for the Homeless is setting up speakers bureaus to address a culture that sees attacking the homeless as a sport. It is the first time the organization has singled out a particular state.

 

Comments: It’s not only a problem of national and “natives” versus immigrants and in general people “inside the system” against people “outside the system” but a problem of the arousal of our lowest and perverse instincts. As in socioeconomic scenarios the dialectic is not the clash of rich versus poor but the frustration discharges of a social group against its circumstantially diminished neighbor at large the perverse escapism need of others being humiliated.
