Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
I advocate helping the poor through changes on the economic level and find helping people in the way it done now works against the poor and everyone else as it makes them poorer and everyone else in extension. I would think people that are always wanting to take others property to help the poor can pick up the slack since there appears to be so many of them.
Anyone wondering what I'm talking about start here:
