I agree with you very much. There is an old Chinese saying "Give a man fish, he will have a meal; teach a man to fish, he will have food all his life." We ought to teach the poors to develop themselves, not only give them the money simply .

There is almost one billion humans every day sleep with out a single meal in the present world 21 century. And it is agreeable with most of the opinions to teach the poor to develop. BUT we can't ignore there IMMIDIATE NEEDS like food, shelter etc, unfortunately which still we are???

I tend not to refuse any needy person and give help to my best whom ever ask, if I have got any money with me at that time immidiately. And this is what WE are taught in general!

Do you agree?


I DISAGREE, because people rely on gossips so robbers end up robbing the poor people too. Especially those quiet people who's been trying so hard to face their own problems silently.

There is nothing wrong being rich and I for one is dreaming to be rich but I do not believe in getting rich by cheating and being dishonest and selfish. I do not believe in putting a relative or other people's life in trouble just to be rich. I believe in climbing up while helping others too because no one will get to the level of life where they are now without the help of the other people within his/her circle of friends or community. While climbing to a higher level in life, I also believe in helping those people who do not help me or in some ways have hurt me because that's the role they prefer to take to help you exert more effort to move on to your dreams. And for those who keep on hurting and criticizing others, I think it is just a sign that they just want to be noticed and seen too so that help will be given to them.

If you want to solve poverty, discuss the issue with the rich people. Why robbed them... I am quite sure there are a lot of rich people out there who sincerely want to help for a good cause. No need to cheat, it might just create a never ending trouble.

I don't think being robin hood will end the poverty. you need to fix the system first. you must guarantee the contunity of equality. otherwise, there will always exist poorer and richer people.

we all don't have the same opportunities to be rich. there are economic, social and cultural differences. if we accept that we are all born with equal rights, we should have the same opportunities. but obviously we don't. that means rich people always steal from poor people already. because they are always born more lucky.

plus, to become rich, you need to steal from other people. for example, even if you earn a lot, you always pay your workers just a little amount. you need to hire more people for your business to be done, but you don't. then, your worker work harder and harder, but you pay him again the same amount or a little bit more.

there are more reasons, like personality... personality is also important to get a job. if you are not good at marketing yourself, you have more trouble with finding job.

there are also bigger economical-political issues , like capitalism itself makes some parts of the world poorer and doesn't let them to get richer.

anyway, i think we are all born with equal rights but don't have the same chances. that makes the world worse and worse. also, being robin hood will not solve the problems. we should first believe deeply that people are equal. but i know that it's a utopia. people are selfish inside their mind and soul.
