But I'm not going to be shamed for not doing every last possible thing on a personal basis to contribute to the cause. That's true about anyone who doesn't contribute every dime they don't need for basic food and shelter to a malaria bed net charity. Those who subscribe to Peter Singer's "drowning child" philosophy may believe this for real, but only the tiniest fraction of us (doubt that includes anyone here) actually lives a life that is blameless by this ethical framework.
