We are so lucky to be born in this part of the world (not just America) and in this time in history. It is our duty to help the world become a better place.
I disagree with this so much.
I don't have the duty to help just because I was born American and have opportunity not afforded to others in the world.
That's no different than what the OP's post is about (the guy who wrote the article, not @juan917 )
Just because someone has something others don't (wealth; born in a capitalistic society) does NOT make them obligated to use those resources to improve the lives of other's that have less.
Now, if someone has more, and CHOOSES to help others...that's living right in my book.
I give my TIME and my MONEY to help the cause I believe in (Suicide prevention), because I CAN, because I WANT to, and because it is a cause that means a great deal to me.
I would rather my morale character guide me in improving the world, and not some false construct of morale obligation and duty created by society based on the guilt of having "more".
