    Protecting the citizens does not mean providing for them things like education, healthcare, housing, access to food, phones, daycare, etc. Protecting them means more along the lines of protecting them from aggression towards their person or property.

    I think it's very absurd, that our government spend a lot of money on social programmes which doesn't work, but can't spend few millions to build shelter for little citizens. Maybe now, in face of this children we lose tomorrow's politicians or culture workers.

    Oh by all means, do house children, even if with public funds. I have never objected to providing for the basic needs and material well being of dependent children.

    But for the life of me I cannot understand why liberals refer to children as the "weakest" and "least" of us. A rather degrading way to refer to children. Personally I think children are the most resilient, and I think they're the best of us.

    Children are more so vulnerable than weak or lesser
