There is definitely a slippery slope when the public adores an artist, and then a few others assume "a some kind of friendship", of bonding, and then, due to that misconception, a handful of usually highly vocal individuals then demand money for ransom, as if nobody did the work.
As if somebody is guilty for enjoying the benefits of their labor.
Meanwhile, I find dark humor in those who shout, all the while wasting their days in fan sites making demands for their poverty as if it was anyone's fault but their own while doing absolutely nothing for themselves by way of this wonderful invention known as The Internet staring them smack in the face. There are so many sources for self-improvement and self-education that the only excuses are, oppression by others, a lack of access to the information, or they are simply incapable of helping themselves and need the help.
All of which is perhaps a matter of using one's reputation to spotlight the problems and spur action. Bandaids and handouts will not help the hungry.
Now, I might be happy to see investment, in clean water. In agriculture.
In the people helping themselves instead of blaming the rich who are already paying 65% of their wealth in taxes, and paying those ungodly taxes exactly to help those who cannot help themselves.
So, to then demand more money than that from anyone sounds like the need to demand government accountability for the programs that already exist. Else we are creating far too many Dependents with our bandaids and our handouts.
If Sir Paul had nothing, you wouldn't be here. What have you got for yourself? What have you done for yourself?
And are there conflicts involved that need to be addressed?
