To all those claiming that America must”share the wealth,” invite the world into our homes without limits: you go first.
However, you *first* need to research exactly how generous we Americans are. We accept more legal immigrants than any other country. We give more for charity and government aide than others.
You might also take a look at the limits to altruism resulting from inalienable rights:
1. It’s not legitimate to give at the risk of your life or liberty.
2. To the extent that one chooses to sacrifice for the sake of another, it’s not ethical to put other’s inalienable rights at risk in doing so.
Worst case, if you deny the existence of”inalienable rights,” at least read Rand on altruism. I’d rather my neighbors were selfish than willing to sacrifice me for their goals.
