Will/has Chris chan affected how the united states views mentally compromised people and government intervention? Has he changed your views? I see chris as a reason for social program reform, I wonder if anyone else feels the same. I question whether the "tugboat" keeps him from being homeless or just enables him to cause trouble with "idle hands" I think we can all agree the "chris chan experiment" is all wrong but, could this have been preventented by mandatory monthly meetings with a social worker, maybe "welfare to work" program? As a younger man I had more empathy towards people, the older I get the more I understand national socialism as opposed to simply socialism.
