The health of our country is directly affected by income equality. Whether that's also true on an international scale is irrelevent.
You've already made clear in previous threads that you feel like you have no obligation to other Missourians any more than you have an obligation to Ugandans. That's on you, but that's not remotely close to a mainstream opinion on the issue. In my opinion, it's an immoral position.
the moral position is to help when one is in need....to get back on their feet...provide for themselves. The way it used to be done before Government handouts and entitlements. Current system encourages people to do nothing for themselves and hope that their elected socialist will redistribute what belongs to others.
The health of this country is affected by handouts and getting people dependent on those handouts. There is a reason why the national parks don't want you to feed the bears.
