On the thread to our recent "TEC IS SATAN" post there has been much reference to ethical living. It is obvious that many people pay lip service to this but are unable to put it into practice.
I've just remembered something from my past that was stuck right at the back of my mind. In England we used to have something to help people with a conscience but who were unwilling or unable to take on the responsibility for it themselves. If my memory serves me right we used to call it The Labour Party. Basically, every few years the less selfish among us would vote for them and, very occasionally, they would become the government for a couple of years or so. They would give some extra money to our poorest people and send a bit more cash to the developing world, that sort of thing. Then the Tories would return and we could all go back to our comfortable lives. Unfortunately, it doesn't exist anymore. It was replaced by something called a Blair. The Blair was just as dedicated to sending lots of money to poorer countries except he liked to do this by dropping expensive bombs on them.
