philanthropy...

not forced altruism.

That's all I'm saying.

Should the men of ability be forced to help the weak and be so bogged down in forced altruism that once the world reaches its max capacity we don't have the talent to go on? What then?

We can't "rise above" nature. That is impossible. That is as foolish as having faith. We are animals and we have animal tendencies. Why endanger everyone for the sake of the weak?

If you want, be philanthropical (I don't even know if that's a word) but do not cast judgement if I do not follow suit. Again, that is all I ask.
