Let me start by saying I do have compassion for my fellow humans. The chances are likely that this young man in the video suffers from some sort of mental disorder. But, for every activist that says we cannot attach that stigma to the homeless, I will assume he does not. So with that in mind . . .
Hey, cuz, like, guess what? When you were 18 and studying English Lit and Creative Writing at UC Santa Cruz, like, cha, did you have any goal in mind? You know, like, "when-I-get-out-of-college-I-wanna-do-fill-in-the-blank?" I am guessing not - you had the expectation that someone else would provide "what's next" rather than figuring out how you, my friend, wree going to achieve that. But I guess ot since you mentioned that when people your age are "done playing this traveling game" they go home to Mom and Dad - and sadly, you don't have that waiting for you back in California. By the way, if you came to California when you were 18 and have a degree, and you're 23 now, chances are it was only a year ago when you graduated - what the hell have you been doing?
So at one time you had money? What happened to it? And what was that you were sparking up at the beginning of the film clip? Yeah, poor you, your friends got tired of you freeoading off of them so they dropped you. What happened, they got a J-O-B and you figured some of that wealth should be shared?
But of course - that's why you bemoan the fact that you can't get SSI ('cause, you know, like, you're not 45) and want a government program to help you out instead of thinking of what you can do for yourself. Have you looked into teaching English in foreign lands, like Japan or China? Have you thought about getting an entry level job and having a side business of tutoring? Oh, and by the way, did you know that most artists - and that includes writers - practice their craft daily since they realize it is a lifelong goal to improve. When did you last sit down and write something, or did you thin it would come with a job? I know you don't have patience - you said as much when you figured you earn $3 an hour panhandling but said you "don't have the patience to stand out there all day."
Oh, and good luck to the budding Michael Moorette making this film. "I seen him . . .?" Chica, why don't you lern to speak proper English and stop with the y'alls when introducing your subject. Leni Riefenstahl you're not.
That's okay. Spark up another doobie and blame the rich industrialists. You'll feel better.
