"There was plenty of charity but too little justice"

 Encountering this quote from Dorothy Day gave me pause.  How true it is that we are really good at giving of our excess but not questioning the underlying system that perpetuates poverty.  Earning wealth to give away still maintains they system that created poverty in the first place.  We must act for justices and not just pat ourselves on the back with our charity.

Below is a great video that critiques ethical consumerism

and another with information about Dorthy Day
