Will you make a pledge to give away all the income you make over the national median in your country/state/or province?
I think I made a mistake in posting the question in that I did not watch the video that I linked to. Maybe there is something in that link that deals with the philosophy of why the Uruguayan president does what he does. To respond to posts by various people, I do not care about equality, equitability, or justice. I don't believe in god. I don't want to give my money to a college girl who parties all the time. My personal belief (not that it matters or is something I want to discuss) is that communism is an evil system. If there are any other scenarios offered by posters that I forgot to address, I apologize. I care about my life. I am doing something that I know will make me happier, and am looking for a couple of pen pals so we can share stories and pictures over the years. The internet can be anonymous, so I thought this would be a good format. I thought people on a site like TED would be relatively well off, so maybe I could find a couple other people like me. Arguing what is good or bad was not the point of my post, I saw it more of a craigslist ad. If you sell something on Craigslist, you don't get 10 replies with people who don't want to buy the thing you're trying to get rid of, You either get zero emails if nobody buys, or you get one or two from people who are genuinely interested, have questions, or know someone who might be interested. Thanks for the reply, I see the flaws in the original question andI hope that I cleared them up for are any future posters

Then, if you pledge to do this, don't give your hard earned money to someone who parties all the time. You don't have to donate your money to people, it can be things, like building a well where there is no clean water, or cleft lip surgery for children or something, I don't know. I definitely don't think it is a good idea for most people to give away a large part of their income, I'm just looking for a couple of people in the whole world. I don't think this pledge is a good or positive thing for most people to do. Communism is a terrible system, I feel sorry for people who have to live in those countries. Capitalism is great. I'm not saying Uruguay is some kind of great country either, but it is a capitalist country. Thanks for your reply.

Maybe you can commit to 5%? Thank you for your reply! If you are worried about accountability, and are thinking about giving to international charities as opposed to your neighborhood, charities that supply mosquito nets to prevent malaria usually have the highest amount of money going directly to the cause. I think most of my donated money for the first year will probably go to a UK based charity called WaterAid, but I have not decided yet. Thanks!
