I found this while doing some reading for my world history class, I think we could all learn something from this. We need to make sure that the people that need our help the most, through acts of charity and government programs, become producers and don't remain #consumers
"There is a great principle for the production of Wealth. If there are many producers and few consumers, and if people who produce wealth do so quickly and those who spend it do so slowly, then wealth will always be sufficient"
The Great Learning, Confucius
It reminds me of the popular adage by #Confucius
that is commonly quoted here in the west "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime."
