    The other day, I was in the middle of a debate, where I was in favour of taxation as a way to help the needy/ people who need money ( disabled people requiring funds for treatment etc).

    I said that we have a moral right to help others who are less fortunate- and I got such an answer- 'That's not a proper rationale. Their disability should not entitle them to taxpayers' money. your reasons are just linked to personal emotions and doesn't constitute a proper reason'.

    Okay, that promptly disgusted me.

    what do you think? Isn't moral responsibility just enough?
