"Charity is a good thing but it's not sustainable. When bad things happen to good people charity tends to turn inward. Charity (extended) in the wrong hands also be condescending and paternalistic. So I don't promote a charity agenda, but rather enlightened self interest. ...People who do things ultimately not just because it is the 'right thing to do,' but because it is in their own enlightened self interest too, will do them forever."
