I'm not sure if this is already a topic but I just found this on Imgur and I decided to post it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBuC_0-d-9Y <- The long version

http://imgur.com/gallery/QcDcI <-The short version

I rarely post these days but this really got me going, the thing I realize is that people only start to care when it is demeaning and wrong, the real demeaning thing is you only start to care when the situation is put on public where you have to act like you give a sh*t.

I know what this video is trying to do, it is trying to make me feel guilty- but that is not what makes me want to share this to you guy, the real question I want to ask you guys- are we as people just hypocrites?

Edit #1: Obviously you guys love to turn one topic into another and pick fights so I'm going to pour more juice that you can run on instead of trailing off.

Don't you find it odd that people only starts to care when issues are put out on Social Media and the Public? sure there are small numbers that given the age and life style they've taken- a few still cares regardless if it is brought to there attention or not, those are the kind of people that that gets the golden medal.

Is it wrong of me to say we are hypocrites? Sure! to some point, but don't twist my words into rag dolls you can play with.
I have stated that I know what this video is trying to do, it is trying to make you feel guilty for not caring- but that is not why I made this topic.

I made this topic because I want you guys to understand that be wary of what you're doing, don't feed into crap that makes you feel like even more disgusting crap, take control of yourself- either you can go out your day changing the world or just do your job and live your life.

But yeah, you're correct. Us people only seem to say something about a cause to make ourselves look moral and just. Even if we feel that way normally, not everyone can go past their own lives to help others. The ones who can are amazing people in that regard.

I'd probably pass by, thinking nothing of it. Could we as humans be more proactive? Depends. I wouldn't make excuses, i'm too lazy for that. I could (if i felt like it) accuse others for not helping but then, if they then choose to be more proactive in what they do to help the poor, so be it. It's not a credit to me.

If he didn't make you feel guilty, you wouldn't ask that question as if hypocrite is a heavy word. It's fucken fluff. You just need to be smart about learning what you would prefer to do.

There was a lady who committed suicide because she began by helped one or two charities, those charities would tell other charities about he and thinking she's an easy target, they'd send her letters. Not one to disappoint, this lady would go on to donate to more and more charities out of guilt and there you have her kindness exploited. So fuck this guy.

^These guy gets it, they understands.
So stop ruining my Topic.

That's not the point I'm making, either you care even when it doesn't matter or you don't at all.
That is a terrible dichotomy. When does poverty not matter? I find it demeaning that you think it's demeaning when someone defends someone that's being attacked.

What should the people have done with the guy with the "Help the Poor" sign? Give him a high five? Seems a little ridiculous to try to draw any sort of conclusion out of this flawed social experiment.

I remember the advert as it's from the UK, I'm sure he's holding one of those things you put money into.

On topic though, some of the poor can get fucked. If they would stop having kids (they always seem to have a lot more than others) and stop sponging off taxpayers money and drop bad habits like drinking and smoking, maybe they wouldn't be poor.

Hope is a lie. To give hope and not support it is like offering a obtainable dream only to deny it. I would think that feeling is worse then not having it in the first place.

Granted I feel for the poor and wish them well, if someone was hurt in front of me I wouldn't ignore them if I can do something simple like call 911, but money? I see too many instances where these things appear planned and mechanical which makes me think some organization is at work.

F those types.
