My answer to Is it good to be somewhat selfish?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Making sure your own life is as good as you can manage it to be is not being selfish it is good sense.
How can we help others if we cannot first help ourselves?
Here in the U.K they have gone to the other extreme. They give money they do not have to corrupt and wasteful Governments and Aid Organisations.
They also give money to countries who have more than they do – China and India.
They do this whilst they close essential sources because of a lack of funding.
The U.K and other Governments who give aid must stop propping up Governments who do not use the money for their people.
Loans to viable projects with no actual money being handed over – we will pay and audit the bills makes more sense and gives a greater value to the money.
