Does HAVING a lot of money come with a LOT of social responsibilities? In other words - if you are rich are you obligated to help others?

What brought this on? Drake bought and wore a $750,000.00 watch to Game 5 NBA finals. I think that's shameful.

    Do you know? There are more poor people today helping poor people than there are rich people helping poor people.

    Not sure why it's shameful to buy ourselves something we would like to have, if we can afford it.

    And i'm also very unsure what someone else's watch has to do with your life.

      Not sure why you can't just answer the question.

    They all have paid taxes. The social responsibilities are on the government's policy. And it should be the first step to become Green like in Europe.

    I'm an adult, I do not worry about what other people do with their money, I just worry about what I do with my money, which includes weekly donations, and occasionally I volunteer.

      "If you are rich are you obligated to help others?" NO. You did NOT answer that question. "I like water!", would also be 'an answer'. Just not an answer to the question ASKED.

    I would say SOME social responsibility, not a LOT. I do make charitable contributions even though I do not have a $750K watch.

    it depends on what you mean by obligated and responsible. whether or not your responsible for anything in the end is really subjective. one person can say im not obligated to help anyone and another could say they are. how do we prove whos right. theres no way to prove whos right because morality at its very core is subjective.
