It is fine to hate criminals. The homeless? They have done far less to merit hatred. Typically they have been unable to do bad things to people of the sort that make others homeless.

If you want to know what it was like to have things designed so that everyone could be treated as a criminal, then contemplate Article 58 of the old Soviet Criminal Code.

Leveling tends to be down, then up, and we're still in the downward phase.  It takes a while for the gravity of anyh situation to dawn on enough people for it to trigger real change.  We're still accumulating converts.
