We’re having a lively debate here at the Avocado Jungle on the limits, if any, to profit. Is it okay to profit off of the poor and sick? Is there a need to regulate such ideas? Are there things we should just do for one another so that everyone benefits equally?
In this current debate on Health Care I’ve been rather surprised by the resistance from the conservative right to providing universal health care to the country. And with out getting into the politics of it too much I am curious how people of faith view the concept of Universal Health Care. I have always felt that if someone is starving you feed them, if someone is dying you try to save their life. Now I do not take this as meaning you can not charge for basic services but should you profit off of it? Is it okay that someone made a profit off of someone dying of cancer? Or if someone made a profit off of texts to raise money for something like Haiti Earthquake Relief?
I personally feel that there is a fairly clear moral and ethical line that should not be crossed. Feel free to read and join the discussion here at the AVJ Writer’s Debate.
