Should we help the beggers?
Debate Rounds (3)
plus! what happened to the Self-respect and all?
Do you think these people choose to be homeless just so they could be lazy and mooch your money. I mean who doesn't want to smell like liquid garbage have pneumonia and no teeth? As long as i can get 5 dollars a day to live on for free it seems like the perfect life!
I'm sure most would not object to a good family, support and education. But the world is not a fair place. So I would not call them lazy scum just because they were dealt a bad hand. I am not surprised they have no self respect with people like you.
Is 5 dollars going to Change anything in their lives?
Imagine this, daily, 100 people pass this beggar and each will help him a dollar. at the end of the day he has 100 dollars.
He is not in need of money anymore! He thinks to himself i can earn daily 100 dollars. why should I work?
or let me approach it this way.
Imagine you help them 10 dollars and your the only one who did in 1day. at the end of the day, he can buy a Mcdonalds or something cheap, just to solve the hunger problem. did your 10 dollars do him any good? NO!
he survived for 1 day but who knows what will happen in the coming days?
what if instead of helping them with money, we provided them a suitable job? or increased the "working spirit" in them?
stuff like you wash my car, and I will give you 10 dollars and a meal each time you do so. or mower my yard and i will give you a room to stay for 1 night (for the case of the homeless).
fidelacchius forfeited this round.
g_bakhtazad forfeited this round.
I'll stick by my radical view that beggars are not all slime and drug addicts. I might even classify them as human's. (see pretty radical).
