A Common Sight

This is a more and more common sight in the, in the eyes of the Danes anyway, world-renowned welfare state of Denmark. The homeless, the poor and the lost is becoming a standard fixture of the streets of the larger cities. Most people in Copenhagen choose to ignore that fact, even though they just have to open their eyes every day to see it. Luckily a number of private welfare organisations have taken over, where the state has failed. And this happens in a state that has one of the largest taxations in the world.
