"Guilt, middle-class guilt, is an affectation and an indulgence. My friends and I thought so and acted upon it in 1968, we are of the same opinion and action today. "

How did you act on the idea that guilt is an affectation? I think the point made before is social conscience (not guilt-just a conscience that we have a duty to others) is considered by some to be affectation. I see it all the time. Whatever the cause your motives are suspect when you intend to do something for the good of it. (Just ignore that attitude, born itself of guilt, providing a reason for inaction.)

We find locally the cost of land, services, and community acceptance is is the hard part, not the buildings. So to house seasonal farmworkers we've resorted to portable structures and temporary setups. These are OK for single males who intend to leave soon after the harvest but only a stopgate measure.
