The Pen is mightier than the sword, but the Pen must sometimes move the sword against corruption if the corrupt are not moved by the pen.. An idea without an implementer is useless. "The Rulers do not carry the sword in vain"Rom 13:4

I have the solution to poverty and homelessness...REALLY.


Today I visited a caravan park and chatted with an elderly man about  his life.  He was alone, retired and on the old age pension.  According to him, he receives $830/fortnight from the Pension.
His rental cost for a site at a Caravan Park in the outer suburbs is...$90/week.

Breaking this down:

Income   $415/week

Outgoings    $90/week  Rent.

Remaining = $325/week for food and bills.

This assumes you can provide your own caravan.

A COUPLE.  Will receive  approx $1200 total together per fortnight, or $600/week
Rent is the same, leaving $510/week for food, bills and travel.


There is no economic reason for people to be 'homeless' in Australia, but there might be a shortage of Caravan Park supply....legislation and funding together can solve that. There are a few small sacrifices, you need to use a common ablution block. Not the end of the world, we all do that at some vacation caravan park...it works for me.
