Sheila Shayon: Can Volunteerism And Service Become Profitable?

8I am never sure how describe capitalism as a cancer or vampire, the outcome is similar it drains potential because the goal is always profit. This story is an example of that capitalism out looking for another victim, oh sorry potential source for profit. I feel activism can usurp this threat by not directly supporting charity organisations, it sounds like a big call. However it is the philosophy of paternalism that underpins charity in the cycle of dependence on others that dis-empowers people. A charity often looses sight of service and becomes obsessed with sustaining their own existence. Further to this organisations start staking out boundaries or turfs on issues that leads to strange monopolies.

Volunteering is about you giving back to your community!
