Have an opinion?
Hmm, if you're able to I think you should try just because you'd probably want the same for yourself. But don't worry about helping every single person you come by. Some things you can't always fix.
That is one of my strongest beliefs, yes. I solemnly think, that people on this earth should aspire into thinking just a little further, than themselves.
Of course. It's called Moral Obligation. You don't have to, but it's morally reasonable to do so. Helping one another is an act of kindness that grows bond and community between humans. We definitely need that because love, compassion and community helps us to grow. These traits creates a positive environment and positivity helps our body cells to grow and as the result, our mental and physical state both improves to be stronger and healthier. Also because we are all humans after all. We like it or not, we all have the same amount of value in the eyes of the universe. We all do need each other and we are part of the circle of the universe. If people would understand this and accept each other more innocently and openly instead of avoiding each other, growing love instead of hatred, being tolerance instead of intolerance, the type of peace and unity we would create as the result of that would be unbelievable.
People have a moral responsibility to help, in situations where they can help, provided they feel a pang from their own conscience (not out of social obligation that they don't believe in), and that courage isn't the thing holding them back.For example, I did confront some kids holding a mallet a few weeks ago, I suspected of breaking into a neighbour's property. There was some small risk to me. If it was 15 youths beating the shit out of someone, then I wouldn't be able to help physically, there wouldn't be much point in risking myself. Though, I have heard some stories of people intervening just using words and moral righteousness!
. . . . . Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. Mk 12:31For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ Mat 25: 35-40
It depends of whom you choose to help because not many people want to be helped.For example if I see some drug addict homeless on the streets as a begger and he is begging because what he needs more drug to survive, sorry I won't help him encourage to consume more drugs so I wotn help him in giving him money on the streets
People don't, and most people take full advantage of this, which is why I try to help as many people as I can.
Oh god, your ringing the dinner bell for the philosophy majors. Quick! Duct tape your head so it doesn't explode!
I guess it depends on the situation?xx~ Mrs Manson
No. Not unless you know for sure that that person is genuine and not taking advantage of you
No it is a dangerous world people should worry about themselves
It's a basic human trait
For people I care about, yes.
Liberals say that , then help themselves
That's why states like WV, KY, AL, MI have to pay so much more to the federal government than they receive, right?
People i care about yes
Only to the extent that we choose
To the best of their ability yes
Yes for sure
Yes we do
I know I do :)
