Well, Its not really our fault. We try to help the world become a better place.
We blame parents that doesn't care about there child and just throw them away. Thats pretty awful.

Weird, that video made me spontaneously think about Epicurus' riddle:

Is God willing to prevent Evil, but not able? Then he is not Omnipotent.
Is God able but not willing? Then he is Malevolent.
Is God both able and willing?
Then whence comes evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him God?

This makes so much sense, its depressing.

I hate stuff like this, stuff that is so horrible and crule and every day getting worse. The thing that is even worse is that some people don't even care or think that some one else will take care of it, and that they sit back and aren't greatful at all for what they have. People who just want more and more while they have so much all ready are pathetic and discusting, it makes me so depressed. our world has fallen to low levels, and we need to help get it back up again, we need to act instead of waiting for someone else to. Its not fair that some people have so much while others have so little or nothing, we are all the same, all equal, so why do things like this have to exist?

absoultely another pointless thread, what is the use of a few persons when the whole society are ignorant?.... think not changing a few, but instead gaining the power to change all..

actully some people are helping.
they're donating money and they're doing 30 hr famine..
even my school is doing it.. and church are doing it too...
some people donate clothes for them or adopt them.
we cant really do much to because they dont have good weather i guess? or global warming?
maybe thats why they can get good food..

So why haven't you sold all of your luxery items in an attempt to help the poor? You don't need the internet, or your computer. Selling those to put them towards a movement trying to lift people up out of poverty would probably be a better use of money, according to you.

Not your property? Then contribute something that you do own, like your time. Spending time with friends? Unnecessary. Go help out at a homeless shelter. In case you already are, you can always contribute more time. I know this because you found the time to post on Crunchyroll.

So now you say, "Hey, that's not cool, I am not comfortable with having to give up all of these things." Yet you deign to pretend you're better than others for having differing levels of empathy and/or comfort levels in sacrificing your wordly objects? When you're feeling completely uncomfortable and unhappy about giving, yet give anyway, then you can talk of morals. Right now, all you're doing is satisfying your insipid need to feel like you're a "good" person.

As for your video -- propoganda at it's best. I'm not trying to discredit anybody's efforts at helping the poor and sick, but it'd probably do the world better if you were to educate yourself; do the world better if the world were to educate itself. Playing off emotions and graphic imagery is a bandage, not a solution.

hm i forgot who but one of the 20th century philosophers said whether God exists, or doesn't exist does not matter, humans must learn to defend on their own

ehh excuse me arent we mr a know it all
it all i help by donatein money to people who go to africa nd i appreciate everything i get
and by posting this topic i was hopein that other people see its up to them to change the world not ohers
im not sayin sell your comp or anything like that what im sayin is if you dont help you should do in any little way
so you can go take your negative ass to where it came from nd do some good instead of being so derogatory


I'm sorry you aren't able to articulate what you're trying to say clearly enough for others to understand. Let me summarize what you posted.

"You should be ashamed of urselves, look at teh world rite now! Omg, u ppl disgust me! Look at dis video!"

*Graphic Video of the Sick and Poor*

I'm not sure how you thought that'd help "other people see its up to them to change the world not ohers".

And I'm sorry that you didn't understand the point of my post at all -- that trying to guilt people into donating doesn't really help in the long-term at all.

I'm also sorry you're offended by the lack of smilies, sunshine, and flowers in my post.
