    A human right is anything a human should have the right to.

    In that case, you have no rights at all. Not even to speech, or the right not to be killed. “Rights” are invented by the society we live in. You have literally none in the natural world. As it exists, “Rights” are a religious idea. (Hence, “God-given rights”)

    The practicalities are of the utmost concern, because those practicalities are governed by the society which recognizes them as rights. As of now, there is no “human right to shelter”.

      Govt. does its best to ensure citizens aren’t murdered, yet it still happens.

      Shouldn’t housing be similarly considered a right like the right to life?

        Housing isn’t free. Not killing someone is.

            That’s enforcement, those police officers don’t need to exist for you not to kill someone…

            Or do they?
