“There is no true kindness in the world”

Permalink: http://paul.us2uk.eu/?x=entry:entry131010-110551

What a good article… a question which vexes me - I think it’s what holds me back from doing more. It’s one of those little nuggets of truth to which the answer may well be the one which no-one wants to admit to.

Is altruism just self-interest in disguise?

One guy was so troubled by this that he set out to prove that it wasn’t, that complete selflessness was real and achievable.

It left him penniless, and then he killed himself.

Support our caregiving

If you found anything on this site of use, interesting, or even mildly amusing then please consider dropping a few pennies in the jar to help us to take care of our disabled son who contracted encephalitis in 2007 at the age of 6 and who is now confined to a wheelchair. He is getting bigger as his mother and I get older, imagine that, please. Every penny we collect goes towards his upkeep, and towards his future care requirements.

Thank you.
