Do we have an obligation to our country, and our society, to help those with less?


Are we obligated to contribute to the society in which we live, by ensuring that all people are fed, educated, have access to health care, and can earn a living wage? Or are we now at a point where it's every person for themselves, and to hell with everyone else?

    When we're talking about worth, shouldn't we take into account the profits being raked in by one's employer? If your company is making billions in profits on your labor, and you can't feed your family, isn't the company obligated to pay you better?
