Not fair but humanity should always take care of others.
Someone has to provide for those not doing anything? Is it fair for those working to provide for those who don't?
Yes... If we used 1/10 of the money we spent on killing each other with weapons and instead used that money to support the lazy arse people of the world it would still provide the basics that every human deserves. It is not the lack of resourses that is the problem it is the misuse of them that has caused the probelms of the world. We need to set the bar high and never go below it for any human. I believe that the non-workers/lazy people of the world would weed themseleves out over generations and not just want the basics and work towards a higher goal and want better things. One other thing is if you choose to only receive the basics you are only allowed to have one child then you must be clipped/snipped and punished for bringing more lazy people into the world.... don't let them breed future bums. We need to make education avaiable to everyone so the each generation takes a step up the social ladder.
Would you do that?
And really, Why do rich people tend to go up to high buildings to kill themselves, I thought money bought happiness, Then why would a billionaire kill himself? That wouldn't make any sense at all.
Take some time, Look at the poor children of Africa or Gaza. If you really consider yourself poor, I think it's a mental issue you're having. You can't possibly be the poorest person on this earth, I think it's love that you're missing, not money.
Yes I have seen people make it out poverty I've witnessed. For every 1 person that makes it I could name 20 that didn't.

You can work DAMNED hard, and get no where what so ever is what I am saying. The only difference, that is the difference between someone who escapes the doldrums, who earns the bread in vast amounts, is not confidence, but psychopathy. The difference in reality, is that we, the people who strive for life, are not prepared to tread someone into the dust to improve our lives, whereas your common or garden self made man, will have crapped on everything he climbed past on the ladder of life, and grinned ear to ear about it all the while. We are almost certainly a better class of scum than that.

You just have to decide to not let the past define you. The future hasn't been written yet; sure you have limited choices, but the ones you do have are yours for the taking.
