 Now my friends, I am opposed to the system of society in which we live =
today,
not because I lack the natural equipment to do for myself but because I =
am not
satisfied to make myself comfortable knowing that there are thousands of =
my=20
fellow men who suffer for the barest necessities of life.=20

We were taught under the old ethic that man's business on this earth was =
to look
out for himself. That was the ethic of the jungle; the ethic of the wild =
beast.=20
Take care of yourself, no matter what may become of your fellow man. =
Thousands
of years ago the question was asked; ''Am I my brother's keeper?'' That =
question
has never yet been answered in a way that is satisfactory to civilized =
society.=20

Yes, I am my brother's keeper. I am under a moral obligation to him that =
is
inspired, not by any maudlin sentimentality but by the higher duty I owe =
myself.
What would you think me if I were capable of seating myself at a table =
and=20
gorging myself with food and saw about me the children of my fellow =
beings
starving to death.
