Arthur Brooks: Helping those in need
If you want a specific example I could point out a project in Guatemalan that our church supports. We help poverty stricken uneducated people to start their own businesses. We help sell their products here in the US. We have transformed many villages into business communities and we have built over 50 schools, Not one cent of government money has been involved. I don't buy the trickle down theory either. The answer is to stop working for the man and start your own business. We started all this by simply buying jewelry making supplies and sewing machines. That was our hand up. The rest the Guatemalan people did by themselves.
I will state, assert and defend the statement that if you love the poor, if you are a good Samaritan, you must stand for the free enterprise system, and you must defend it, not just for ourselves but for people around the world. It is the best anti-poverty measure ever invented.
