I'm raising potentially challenging questions.
Should we help the poor/weak or do nothing?
(of course, there might be more options not mentioned)
For some, it may be instinctual to say "yes of course we should help, how can we just watch them suffer?" But maybe it's worth considering whether the world would have enough resources to support a wealthier (and thus more resource-depletive) human population.
The world is overpopulated with humans as it is. Natural resources are becoming more scarce as a result of human overpopulation and overconsumption and careless depletion of natural resources.
One argument might be, the world was never intended to support such a overpopulated human species. Currently, as life gets better, we're using more resources. If more people were to improve their lives, they would consume even more resources than now.
Another argument could be, that everything has a balance with 2 sides, including quality of life. For some to have a good life, other must suffer. One man's gain is another one's loss. This is how the world must be.
Yet another point could be that many poor/weak people were born by mistake. Their parents didn't mean to conceive them, but it happened anyway. Notice that the world's fastest growing regions are the poorer countries. More "mistakes" are made there, so the sooner they die off, the more mistakes are corrected.
OK, what say you?
