It is said that we should look after one another, that we should treat people the way in which we would be treated, that we should do unto others...
But most people do not practice this philosophy.
Most people are only here to get what they can for themselves.
But is this being selfish?
Can a man give when he has nothing to give?
Or should a man give from his substance and not only from his abundance?
It is said that where much is given, much is expected.
But should we expect less from those who have less?
Should we even expect those who have nothing (Which is almost an impossibility in modern America) to contribute nothing to society, their families or even themselves?
Should we expect those with nothing to seek a higher goal than that of being consumers of goods which they cannot really afford?
Should we expect those with nothing to even comprehend the value of helping others?
Is virtue to be valued by those in the upper classes alone?
Is doing good for others something that is reserved only for those from the upper classes - or are those from the upper classes members of the upper classes because they practice doing good for others as a way of life?
