Anyone who blames others for giving money for profit is a self-serving bad guy

Anyone who blames others for giving money for profit is a self-serving bad guy. I find a lot of people accuse donors of trying to make a profit, that donations shouldn’t be profitable, and I think that’s wrong. If you think donations are good deeds, then good deeds should be rewarded, both financially and honorably. Just like Assange, his revelations were good deeds, so he got the reputation. Because it is a good deed, everyone will raise funds to help him. If you think good deeds should not be rewarded, then you should not rescue him and let him be tried by the US government. In ancient China, Confucius had a dialogue with his disciple Zigong, "There is a law in the state of Lu: if the people of the state of Lu see misfortune in foreign countries and become slaves, as long as these people can be redeemed to help them restore their freedom, Then you can get compensation and rewards from the state. Zigong, a student of Confucius, redeemed the people of Lu from foreign countries, but refused the compensation from the state. Confucius said: "Ci (Duanmuci, Zigong), you are wrong! Receiving compensation from the state will not damage your character; but if you do not receive compensation, there will be no one in Lu to redeem their dead compatriots. In this story we can see that if good deeds cannot be rewarded, and those who do good deeds in order to be rewarded will be condemned, then no one will do good deeds in the future. In the future, people like Assange will raise funds again. will not get any help.
谴责他人为了盈利而捐款的人都是自私自利的坏人。我发现很多人指责捐款人试图盈利,认为捐款不应该获得盈利,我认为这个是错误的。如果你们认为捐款是善行,那么善行获得奖励就是应该的,无论是经济上的还是名誉上的。就像阿桑奇一样,他的揭露行为是善行,所以他获得了名誉。因为是善行大家才会筹集资金去救助他。如果你认为善行不应该获得奖励,那么你们就不应该救助他,让他被美国政府审判好了。在中国古代,孔子与他的弟子子贡有过一个对话,“鲁国有一道法律:如果鲁国人在外国见到同胞遭遇不幸,沦落为奴隶,只要能够把这些人赎回来帮助他们恢复自由,就可以从国家获得补偿和奖励。 孔子的学生子贡,把鲁国人从外国赎回来,但拒绝了国家的补偿。孔子说:“赐(端木赐,即子贡),你错了!向国家领取补偿金,不会损伤到你的品行;但不领取补偿金,鲁国就没有人再去赎回自己遇难的同胞了。” 在这个个故事中我们可以看出如果善行不能得到奖励,而为了得到奖励的去做善行反而要被谴责,那么以后就没有人去做善事。以后像阿桑奇这样的人再次进行筹款将不会得到任何的帮助。

The founders of the United States of America, were led by many men who believed in the words of Adam Smith, in his book “the wealth of nations”

As every individual, therefore, endeavours as much as he can both to employ his capital in the support of domestic industry, and so to direct that industry that its produce may be of the greatest value, every individual necessarily labours to render the annual revenue of the society as great as he can. He generally, indeed, neither intends to promote the public interest, nor knows how much he is promoting it. By preferring the support of domestic to that of foreign industry, he intends only his own security; and by directing that industry in such a manner as its produce may be of the greatest value, he intends only his own gain, and he is in this, as in many other cases, led by an invisible hand to promote an end which was no part of his intention. Nor is it always the worse for the society that it was not part of it. By pursuing his own interest he frequently promotes that of the society more effectually than when he really intends to promote it. I have never known much good done by those who affected to trade for the public good. It is an affectation, indeed, not very common among merchants, and very few words need be employed in dissuading them from it.


人人都努力工作以维持家庭生产,同时尽可能使其产出的价值最大化。因此,每个人都会努力增加社会的年度收入。他通常既没有意图推动公共利益,也不知道自己究竟为公共利益做了多少。选择支持本国产业而非外国产业,他只是为了自身的安全;而通过指导产业以使其产出的价值最大化,他只是为了自己的利益,这就是他在许多其他情况下,由无形手中推动了社会的目标,这并不总是社会最不好的结果。追求自己的利益,有时会比真正意图推动社会利益更有效。我从未见过那些假装为公共利益 trade 的人做出多少好事。这种假装在商人中并不太常见,所以要训斥他们并不需要许多话。

We are investing, please understand that. Even if you think it is a donation in form, but in essence we are investing, no one lends money for charity. And the whole process did not ask for the opinion of the community, it is a decision made by a few people, I think you can put it another way: anything that damages other people’s property, burdens others with debt, makes life difficult for others, or even destroys other people’s lives. people are bad people. Yes, whatever you say, it’s essentially investing, and we have reason to think we’ve been scammed
