A leader in charge of a large group of people needs to cast aside their personal moralities and think of the big picture. Not all people are meant to do this kind of work, but the job does have the requirement of making decisions that are not always morally sound. Governors will always have to make tough choices for the betterment of the state. There are easy examples that occur during war, especially in the modern world today. Most would say that taking a life is wrong, but what about if taking one life saves thousands.
A mass body of people pointed out what they liked and disliked. Throughout history, one can clearly see change is made through citizen’s inputs that eventually makes an impact on the quality of life. During the Progressive Era, America was portrayed as the “best country” in the world. However, no one bothered to bring up the fact that one out of three people were starving to death or only six out of ten children were attending school due to financial instability in American households. The government was well aware of the poverty issues but they did not make an effort to help the people.
If Americans were to send all the excess money overseas, they would not have a comfortable amount of money if something unexpected were to come up that they had to pay for. Several Americans have had unpredictable events happen in their life, including the death of a loved one or an illness they were not expecting. Even today, many Americans do not have enough money to pay for these unforeseen events. If they were to send all their excess money away they may not have any support from others as well, which may put them in the same predicament as those they were trying to help. Another con for sending all the excess money to overseas aid groups would be that this has failed in the past.
I agree with this quote for a few reasons. To begin, the people in today’s society do not want to get out of their comfort zone in search of something greater. They can settle for anything that will keep them alive. This is not how these people should think. Everyone has at least one dream or goal in
Without basic needs people would not be able to survive and prosper in their lives. I support the idea of free housing because there are many people that are homeless or could not afford accommodations; however, I do not support the idea of achieving free housing by taxing people or taking their property. I agree that taxing is a form of theft because people give their property unwillingly, while they have earned it with their labor, time and talent. I support Nozick’s idea of self-ownership that people should be able to do what they want with their property. That is why I go against the method of taxing; however, I still believe free housing should be achieve.
Also, they say that why we should protect these species if they do not know how to protect themselves first. People themselves need this money to survive and help each other. Moreover, they think that human is more valuable than animals and plants, so the money should be spending on people only. According to Juliet Ford (2014), in "8 Reasons Why We Need to Stop Worrying About Endangered Species", it is waste of money to spend it on saving plants and animals because human life is much important than them. Furthermore, the government can spend money on helping poor people who need food and somewhere to live rather than on animals and plants.
Members of lower levels of poverty usually have a higher stigma of laziness attached to them. For example, there are programs in which poor families can receive grants and academic scholarships to receive a higher education and later get a job, but often, these advances are ignored. Multiple families who fall victims to poverty take little to no action to improve their condition. In addition to federal aid promoting a decline in responsibility, it also encourages laziness for people who receive it. For instance, if a person is receiving a cash aid from the government, it is more likely that they would not pursue more money elsewhere.
The leading cause of death in the world is hunger. Today, around twenty one thousand children die around the world due to poverty. Although the root of the problem does not solely lie on the wealthy, the root of the problem is the improper allocation of our resources. A new study from McGill University and the University of Minnesota published in the journal “Nature” shows that in a year, the world produces enough food to feed ten billion people and that’s like 1 ½ of our total population. But still billions go to sleep hungry every night.
Everynight over half a million Americans will fall asleep without a home, they are homeless in one of the richest countries on the planet. Capitalist countries naturally have an imbalance of wealth and thus the citizens of these countries often face the moral conundrum of charity and humanitarian aid. In many smaller cultures the dependency of the few is the burden of many however when discussing large nations and the suffering of hundreds of thousands one must consider factors such as population capacity, resource management and long term dependency. When such factors are considered it becomes much harder to maintain a from each according to his ability and to each according to his need system. Large nations cannot bear the burden of homeless,
"You can't change how people treat you or what they say about you. All you can do is change how you react to it. " - Mahatma Gandhi It’s not always necessary to change someone's mind, because it's not worth the time. Just because they’re right doesn’t mean you’re wrong. You don’t need to change yourself just because you care of what other people think of you but rather, change because you want to.
