I’ve never understood the thinking that says “Just think of all of all the (insert cause of your choice) we could help iwith that money.”

Why does anyone think that the money spent would have necessarily gone to (insert cause of your choice) at all? Dan-o says to “take care of all of our people”. What does “take care of” mean? Do we spend whatever it takes to put everyone in the 50th percentile? What would that do to the people in the top 50%?

Every society that has ever existed has had it’s poor and downtrodden. I wonder how many of those societies even came close to helping theirs as much as we do ours.

Give me a society that is willing to reach for the stars any day.
