This House Would give Money to Individuals rather than Charities

When people donate money, they often give to charitable organisations (e.g. Children in Need). However, money from these donations does not usually go directly to the individual, since the charity has to pay for staff, events, and other running costs. The alternative is giving money to individuals (e.g. giving money to a busker or homeless person). This goes directly to the individual but does not provide organized services (e.g. foodbanks or homeless shelters). There is less money given directly to individuals than to charitable organisations overall.

Na potrzeby tej debaty Niebo istnieje i jest to raj do którego po śmierci trafia 15% populacji umierającej w danym roku.

THS moral relativism

Moral relativism accepts context as a relevant factor in morality, such as specific sets of "cultural" or "religious" values. For example, the 1993 Bangkok Declaration, signed by Asian countries, subscribes to a set of human rights based on "Asian values", prioritising economic development over social freedom. The 1990 Cairo Declaration, signed by Muslim-majority countries establish guidelines for human rights based on "Islamic values". Moral relativism is often contrasted with moral universalism, which is the idea that moral ethics applies equally to all individuals regardless of distinguishing features such as culture, identity, nationality, etc, the most prominent example of which is the UN Declaration of Human Rights.
