It is assumed that labor is available only in connection with capital; that nobody labors unless somebody else, owning capital, somehow by the use of it, induces him to labor.  This assumed, it is next considered whether it is best that capital shall hire laborers, and thus induce them to work by their own consent, or buy them and drive them to do it without their consent.  Having proceeded so far, it is naturally concluded all laborers are either hired laborers or what we call slaves. Now, there is no such relation between capital and labor as here assumed...  Labor is prior to and independent of capital.  Capital is only the fruit of labor, could never have existed if labor had not first existed.  Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much higher consideration....  Inasmuch as most good things are produced by labor, it follows that all such things ought to belong to those whose labor has produced them.  But it has happened in all ages of the world that some have labored, and others, without labor, have enjoyed a large proportion of the fruits.  This is wrong, and should not continue.  To secure to each laborer the whole product of his labor as nearly as possible is a worthy object of any good governmet.          Abraham Lincoln

Charity is an ugly trick. It is a virtue grown by the rich on the graves of the poor. Unless it is accompanied by sincere revolt against the present social system, it is cheap moral swagger. In former times it was used as fire insurance by the rich, but now that the fear of Hell has gone... it is used either to gild mean lives with nobility or as a political instrument.        Rebecca West

Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment. In the last analysis, the welfare of the workers depends upon their own initiative. Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy or social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toilers.      Samuel Gompers, a founder of the U.S. Labor Movement

Men who have both made and given away millions testify that giving intelligently is much more difficult than making a fortune. We who are not rich may find that hard to believe, but we should be impressed by overwhelming agreement among those in a position to know.     
                                                                                         Garrett Hardin, "Filters Against Folly" 

The present position which we, the educated and well-to-do classes occupy, is that of the Old Man of the Sea, riding on the poor man's back; only, unlike the Old Man of the Sea, we are very sorry for the poor man, very sorry; and we will do almost anything for the poor man's relief. We will not only supply him with food sufficient to keep him on his legs, but we will teach and instruct him and point out to him the beauties of the landscape; we will discourse sweet music to him and give him abundance of good advice. Yes, we will do almost anything of the poor man, anything but get off his back.    Leo Tolstoy                                            
It is true that we might do a vast amount of good if we were wealthy, but it is also highly improbable, not many do; and the art of growing rich is not only quite distinct form that of doing good, but the practice of the one does not at all train a man for practicing the other... It is a mere illusion that, above a certain income, the personal desires will be satisfied and leave a wider margin for the generous impulse. It is as difficult to be generous, or anything else...on thirty thousand as on two thousand a year.   Robert Louis Steveson

The need for financial security was too deeply engrained. That singular fear is probably the greatest obstacle to moral action in today's society. There are arguments that one can live simply on a large salary while using the excess for good works, but we have never seen them lived out.

Charitable money too often goes for bricks and mortar at the expense of people. Those big plaques are a nice ego reward for the benefactors. But are they really what society as a whole needs most right now?  We have 15 million poor kids, most of whom have no place to go when they're out of school. They roam the streets for hours each day, while college kids get fancy new gyms.        Jonathan Alter
