Internet images are rife with the doling of food, housing, medicine and other services to the needy from Syria to Yemen to Iraq; to Ethiopia to South Sudan to Somalia to Central African Republic; to Haiti and to parts beyond, on all the continents. The subjects of the images provoke feelings of sadness, giving and compassion.
Yet, seemingly present in the eyes of the many wards of charity, there appear to be an inquiring sorrow that questions the donee v. donor determinant factor. The imbalance of the ownership and the distribution of the world's wealth could become earnest inquiries to which wards of charity might seek self-serving answers.
Hence, it might not be long before a ward of charity or his/her seed, demand wide scale shares of ownership of national resources that are owned externally. It is then that the service of charity would have run its course with humankind aspiring to economic equality.
The unharnessing of the imbalance of wealth could propel the needy into new positions of ownership and status, thus forcing present wealth holders to share the bounty of planet Earth or risk perpetual conflict against a large, hungry and determined class. Of these possible matters, we should consider as the demand for charity expands.
