: But are you to blame for what you *do*? Being born black is what you are, being born Rich is what you do- difference.

Explain how a chiled 'does' being rich? Is he 'guilty' by not immediately giving out the wealth upon reaching whatever age?

: Erm, but you have accepted the notion of totality, gee, that its all one big system, so the one kid is rich *because* the other is poor.

Never suggested a causal relationship that means you trace a poor persons 'poorness' to a rich persons 'richness' in any way which implies cuplibility. No contradictions.

: You yourself say the Market is the work of human consciousness, thus riches and poverty are the work of human consciousness.

No culpibility in the child. Does he become culpible later by not spending his life in helping others?

: Argh! Bourgeois chairty, what a lot of wank. NEVER GIVE TO CHARITY! Compleete toss, conscience slaving toss.
