why dont the Rich ever help the poor
We've all seen it trailer trash becoming Rich either through talent, lies, illusion or what ever the people want and they never do great admirable things with their money. They just buy huge houses, here .and there , act fake, try to get more money, and spend on crumby things. I mean how is it as soon as people get Rich they become kinda pathetic and thick.

Because they snub their past. They didn't work hard for it. Real rich people do. They donate all the time.

Re: why dont the Rich ever help the poor
Many Hollywood stars admit to being massively over paid , meaning their talent does not match their worth. So why don't they just help the nerdy with 50 million. Which many can spare and probably not even notice. Instead they complain at tax and any expense.

Many people are poor because they continue to make poor choices in their lives. No amount of "help" can trump honest individual effort to succeed. If the effort is not there, that person is doomed to failure regardless.

It's near impossible to become rich, the rich made sure of it.

With all the tax's, law's and other loop holes you have too cross too even get started.

Then you will reach a point where you need to sell out.

Re: why dont the Rich ever help the poor
You should define which "rich" you're talking about.

Over the years I've seen obituaries/stories in the newspapers about rich people you've never heard of.

Inevitably, the article will mention that this person gave millions to charities ANONYMOUSLY

there was one guy who would walk the streets on Christmas Day, handing out $100 bills to homeless people. You never heard about this when he was alive, because he didn't do it for publicity or aggrandizement.

Re: why dont the Rich ever help the poor
Because they snub their past. They didn't work hard for it. Real rich people do. They donate all the time.
 Quoting: Munsoned


Define "real rich"...


Is this some kind of accumulated wealth which never needed stolen oil through wars, didn't need some kind of banking loan with monopoly money, wasn't propped up by an underground financier using drug trade cash, doesn't monopolize a market sector, doesn't prey on necessity, doesn't entrap the consumer with cheap Made In China products rebranded and sold at %5000 above manufacturing costs...


Quite confused as to how you differentiate 2 classes of Rich.

There's only 1 type of rich, the GREEDY, CORRUPT, PREMEDITATING, DECEITFUL, MONOPOLIZING type.

Donation by this "real rich" is a pitiful way of supposedly erasing the guilt. And as for those BIG charity events, they aren't what you think they are, it's mostly a promotion of something underlying with a Public Relations Banner which distracts.

The only thing that you could give the poor that actually helps, is education that leads to practical skills.

All other options are pretty useless, as they seed dependency and lack of purpose.

It is a reflection of their culture and values. People who have been monied for a long time set up foundations and sponsor things. They help people quietly and without demands for publicity.

True. But you can stabilize the poor.

Paying off debts. Like the people who are burdened by a family members death.

Re: why dont the Rich ever help the poor
Wealthy people often give to the poor - but there is a difference between people who have made their wealth and know how to handle it and those who are suddenly rich and clueless.

However, it does seem to be the human condition that when you reach a certain level of income, you move out of the ghetto or trailer park and never look back, thinking it's not your place to bring up every scumbag who lives there. I understand that.

It's similar to when a black family makes it to middle or upper-middle class - they always move to lilly-white neighborhoods to live so that they can send their kids to good schools and raise them where there is less crime. However, when enough of them move into the neighborhood it again turns bad and infested with drugs and crime and the schools go to shit. Go figure. I guess there's a threshold on the percentage of trashy people (of any color) who can move into a neighborhood before it hits the tipping point.

And that depends on what your idea of "help" is. Just forking over cash to magnify someone's poor life choices is not "help", its a recipe for disaster. True "help" is assisting that person in creating the circumstances within their lives that will allow them to succeed.
