Haha! Yes, you expressed your opinion rather defensively. Saying my analogy is incorrect is flouting history. You know why socialism doesn't work, right? Distribution of wealth is economic suicide. It doesn't matter if the charity asks them what they need, because they still aren't spending their own money.

Suffering - Everyone is born into suffering. It's our job to lift ourselves out of it and to protect our children from it. If you are able to invest wisely and lift yourself and your children out, then that is money well spent. If you give it to someone who has floundered their money for generations, you are most likely floundering your money now.

Luxuries - If you think luxuries aren't important for freedom and happiness, I suggest you try giving up all of your luxuries and see where it gets you. Luxuries are rarely arbitrary desires. They promote our physical and psychological well-being, and people have worked very hard for those things for someone to tell them that they must now give them up.

Motives - I know you don't have ulterior motives. You just want to help people, and you think the way to do that is for us all to hold hands, and let the people who have become well-off lower themselves so people who are not well-off can have a free ride. Simply trying to help someone besides yourself doesn't automatically mean you're doing good. Giving charity out of the heart is a great and human thing, but I admire no one who gives for political or popularity reasons, or because they were guilted into it by someone who knows what's better for their money than they do.

Charity is good, but you're original comment detracted from real compassion, and condemned a real gift for the sake of some true greater good. No, you're not going to convince most people of such corrupt white knighting, and I suggest you give it up yourself and not command your compassion, but let your compassion command you. Those things will make the world will be a better place.

The concept of sacrificing yourself for others sounds good and can be noble in some cases, but for the most part it's only self-destructive. The reason for that is the same reason socialism doesn't work: nobody knows where someone's money is better spent than themselves. Take the example of gift giving. A group of people can either buy each other gifts or buy a gift for themselves. In which scenario do you think everyone will get what they want? Obviously, the latter.

Another important point is best described in scripture. "He who has shall be given more. He who has not, even what he has will be taken away." People who make good decisions tend to do well, and people who make bad decisions tend to do poorly. This is by design. Sacrificing those who have for those who don't can have a net loss for everyone by supporting those who make bad decisions and minimizing those who make good decisions. Another quote is: "Do not cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample your pearls, and turning about, trample you." You can help others when you feel it put on your heart to do so, but NOT because some charlatan tries to guilt you into it.

For thousands of years, the world has been in a tug of war between the "the greater good" or "the public good", and freedom and independence. While the former sounds good, it has been used from antiquity unto this very day to commit mass atrocities, including genocide, in every part of the world without pause. It also has a smaller but not small effect on everyone else by robbing them of freedom and sapping their efforts.

This concept dates back to at least some ancient Mayan hieroglyphs I remember seeing. There were two images, one of people tilling soil followed by stairs leading up, and the other of people holding hands followed by stairs leading down. That was in the context of a story involving the coming of a Messiah-like entity.

First of all I don't think this makes me what is wrong with the world.

In regards to your first point, we can just ask people what they want done in their community. Most modern charities don't just give money and build things, they ask what needs to be done in specific communities.

Secondly the analogy is incorrect. A correct analogy would have half the people given 100 dollars to spend on them selves and the other people 10 dollars to spend on them selves. Why don't we, with the 100 dollars, ask what the other people want and help them buy it?

This also applies to your next point. People are born into their position with no choice involved. Why should they have to suffer just because of chance.

I agree with your second quote. We can't just make people give money. However I can try to make people care. It's all about understanding. We just don't understand each other's positions.

I find your next statement slightly naive. You believe that just because I advocate the greater good, I have some ulterior motive. I can assure you that I do not. I don't want to rob people of their freedoms. We don't need all this luxury to be free and happy people.

I'd also like to apologise for the way I expressed my opinion. I know now that I can't make people care by posting on the internet. I hope that one day we will find an answer on how to make this world a better place.

Don't tell me what I'd do. I work my ass off everyday and I pay my taxes. I'm not rich so those taxes are all the generosity you're getting out of me. I barely survive as it is, and between having internet or giving my excess money away to people in Africa I don't know, there's only one option.

And as far as things go, just throwing money at things is a terrible way of getting anything done. Most money sent to charities to give African kids supplies ends up going to warlords.
