The fact that people like you are allowed to vote (assuming you're not a felon, big assumption I know), highlights the flaws of universal suffrage. Frankly, sociopaths like you are exactly the type of people who should be locked away for the good of society.

I know it sucks. I even voted for the people who will actively make things worse and everything

A caveat: The article doesn't play it up, but a lot of these people were homeless because of Katrina, not because of the mental health and social issues, so it probably can't be extrapolated to solve long term homelesnesss in general. But it is more evidence that catching people who have just become homeless is fairly effective.

So perhaps the answer is more natural disasters? It worked as a staple of Syfy's films for a time...

Well at least we're on track to implement that policy whether we like it or not. Nature is healing and shit.

but also it sounds like the shock effect on the psyche a natural disaster can cause is a big motivator so how do we implement that without needing a hurricane

With the right arms dealer, that question is moot.
