Slavoj Zizek on charity

This brilliantly animated video discusses the ethical implications of charitable giving. It makes you think about our culture in a refreshingly different way. Even if you don’t agree with his viewpoint, it’s helpful to think about other political views in order to inform your own.

Simply put, his overarching point is that if you give to charity, then the root cause will not be solved, just a symptom of the problem.
