This is an interesting discussion, but you are missing part of the point
entirely I believe.  The point is people need PLACE and need to feel they
belong -- okay -- so you start by giving them a PLACE they can be, or go and
feel a part of -- and this then can develop out into something more.  As the
poem says not just a physical place, but a spriitual place, and a sense of
community.   Some of you are getting a little too intellectual, and not
taking into consideration that it might not even matter if a person has a
physical home, if they feel that they have a place in society, a group they
belong to, have a sense of community.  That comes BEFORE the land and the
houses.
