    I would only give money if the person seemed like he/she wouldn't use the money to intentionally self-destructively stay in his/her current position as homeless. If the money is used to at least attempt to help the person better their situation, what harm is there really?

    I always give money to homeless people, because I feel bad for them.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.

    I've donated the odd sandwich to homeless guys on a number of occassions. I've yet to meet anyone that got pissed off by this small gesture.

    I'd buy the person lunch, and talk to him about his situation over lunch. If he seemed interested in bettering his situation, then I'd offer him a job or give him the name of a contact that could provide work that he was interested in. In the latter case I'd also put him up in a hotel and buy him some new clothes and help him be presentable for any job interview.

    I'd want to give him money, but what moral decision forces me to give money to a "good-hearted homeless person"? Whether I give him money or not would not adversely affect myself, or my ability to maintain myself. I would intentionally not give him money just to prove that the morally sound option isn't always a forced option. I always have the opportunity to use my free will and act like they don't exist.

    This is probably because I just wouldn't find much enjoyment with "charity." I'd rather go do something for myself. It's just a regular cost/benefit analysis that I'd likely benefit more by being selfish than providing charity.

    Normally, when I see homeless people on the streets, I avoid them because of how relatively unpredictable they are. What are the chances of them using the money for something good? Will the money have lasting impact? Do I really care about them? If I give this homeless person money, what makes them different from the last one that I didn't? Where's the consistency? Do I feel safe around them, security wise and health wise? Why are they even homeless in the first place? Is it really that impossible to FIX the situation on your own? Should I question their character?
