You brought it up.
Like I said, we'd be better off relying on each other than govt.
It's no fun relying on the gov but people are not reliable either.
It's a problem
I mentioned earlier my need of help and getting it. I understated that. In the city I was in at the time I could eat five hot meals a day with a bus
pass, which I could also get for free. I could fill up a pantry and fridge just as easily. I was able to immediately find a way to trade work for a
room. All of that was private charity and the help was immediate. No forms, no waiting weeks and weeks, no being judged by a soulless government
worker who treats taxpayers money like it is their personal money. I learned a real lesson in just how generous people can be, in particular the
I also mentioned I've been involved in a lot of fundraising since then. I understated that. I've done enough of it to even know the statistics about
it from actual data.
Yes people can be trusted to step up to the plate when needed and they are very, very generous. The wealthy are extremely generous and the over 45
crowd give in a big way. Their kids are grown and gone, they have the money and they share. I will concede the below 45 crowd are far less generous
for various reasons. Youthful apathy being at the top and the fact they are raising families.
I learned a lesson early on after sitting across a conference table surrounded by real money. Heads of family owned businesses worth millions or
billions who routinely give a large percentage of their profits to charity and yes they really do that. One powerful family in the Pacific Northwest I
met gives half of their profits to things like shelters and food banks and never make a peep about the lies told about them or the fact they are hated
by activists who lie about them.
The biggest givers though are the mom and pop businesses who are the heart of their community and they give until it hurts through local Christian
charities and local community programs. They never get credit for it and seldom seek recognition. They are the silent hero's.
The government be damned. The government promises and then goes out of it's way to find reasons not to help or withholds help until it's too late. I
can't tell you how many times I've witnessed federal employees take joy in the suffering of others as they deny help with a slight grin on their faces
knowing they are wrong and not caring.
Many people who are our neighbors silently give and give through their churches and by doing things like dropping off a truckload of food to help.
We Americans are in fact the most generous people on the Earth and the hated Christians are the most giving of all.
Sounds to me like you have drank the Kool Aid. Don't believe me, start looking around your own community with open eyes.
