Okay, I'm not totally sure if this is relevant here, but it's been on my mind lately. This could come out a bit rambling.
It seems human rights issues are really distribution of wealth issues. I've been studying the Qur'an and Islam lately, and in the Muslim world you are expected to give 2-3% of your accumulated wealth to charity each year. There is also Ramadan and maybe some other times where Muslims are instructed to give to charity. Charity means giving to the poor, but the Qur'an specifically instructs that when a choice must be made, taking care of poor relatives is morally superior to taking care of strangers.
Of course there is Christian tithing as well, which is generally placed at 10% of income. But I understand that tithing generally goes to the Church to benefit the members rather than being solely for charity to the needy.
So what do you think? Do we have a greater responsibility to our own families/employees/communities than to the rest of the world? And what amount of resources should be given to charity?
