Marler’s Law

“There is an inverse relationship between the distance a person in need lives from a helping person and the helper’s willingness to help.”

This is true at the individual and national level. The affluent individual  in America will contribute more readily to a starving person in Africa than he will to a person in similar circumstance across the track in his own community.

Likewise the United States government routinely and easily contributes to poor people in underdeveloped countries while killing, with numbing regularity, proposals for providing health care, food and education to persons in need in America.
