Do you believe in evolution? In natural selection?
The process is not over; humanity is not finished. It is never finished, but must keep growing or it stagnates.
What to do, then? Move forward, instead of past.
This means don't help the poor. Have help and care for those who suffer misfortune. But the poor will always be with us. Of their own making or lack of abilities.
Let nature -- the hand of God -- do her work.
Not just to the poor, but to the idle rich, and to the clueless, retarded, stupid, broken, misaligned, etc.
We got this way by purging the least necessary. The hunters kill the weak. The strong surge on, and all benefit.
Would you rather be born stupid and useless, or strong and intelligent? That is the question for future generations.
