It takes wisdom to be charitable.
The USA is in unknown territory in terms of understand what our population really needs. We have unlimited demand at food banks, yet the fattest population on the planet. Everyone can go to college, yet we are bankrupting ourselves with school debt. We give boots to the homeless, but turns out they aren’t homeless.
We suffer from poverty, but its not material poverty.
The left LIKES this behavior, they condone it. You won’t ever get a sheeperal to admit it, but they definitely wouldn’t support any action to put a stop to it.
They like the gov’t doing “charity” because there is no oversight (”judging”) of the need of the recipients.
“It takes wisdom to be charitable.”
I believe there was a Papal encyclical a few years back that touted the necessity of linking charity to “understanding”. This caught my eye because I am Buddhist, and our view is the same. Many people, even some Buddhist practitioners, equate Buddhism with an all-out, unthinking compassion. But the correct understanding is that, just as a bird cannot fly with only one wing, virtuous behavior is only possible with a union of compassion and wisdom.
