beside that, what I don't understand is the mentality of "this is MY money, I'm not responsible for others"
So, does that mean that a person should keep his money and not worry about those who have health problems and cannot afford treatment ?
The argument usually is "I work and they don't" does everyone forget that besides economical problems there and a myriad of reasons why some people are unemployed ? Do they know anything about discrimination in the work market ? Do they also realise that some people cannot get jobs or keep a job simply because they suffer from depression ?
I have a friend in Holland who has been suffering from depression. The government pays for his treatment plus allows him to work only part time and completes his salary for a full time wage until his treatment is over. If the help from the government wasn't provided, this 37 year-old man would have probably ended up living in the street.
So, people prefer to keep their money and allow the less privileged to go to hell, not even thinking that with that money they will end up buying a new computer anyway.
