Housing is a human right: Sczerina Perot at TEDxASL

Author Since: Mar 11, 2019

  1. Where is the housing to be and how much should one be entitled to? For example, if I have 6 kids should I have more housing than one who has none? Who defines if my housing is adequate? If I desire my housing in say Lower Manhattan, central London or Malibu, should I be able to get it there vs.somewhere else? What amenities should my housing have? Should I still be entitled to this even if I have no desire to work or pay for it? If some standard is arrived at that answers the above, can I then make an additional claim for more based upon some other as yet to be defined human rights? How about a right to recreation? How about a right to travel at will? What is the minimum of human rights, where do they end and who decides?

  2. I was homeless for over a year in Europe. The vast vast majority of the people I shared the streets with were criminals and drug addicts before ending up on the streets and still are. Get off your high horse telling me that their problems are my fault and my government's fault. Moral outrage? Spend a few months sleeping on the streets and then you'll know what you're talking about.
