The trouble with this shocking lack of generosity that the world, and particularly the nationalist right wing world, is showing towards nations which find themselves in a spot of barney should be obvious. Apparently it isn’t though, so I’ll spell it out. As you sow, so shall you reap. And if we aren’t prepared to show compassion and kindness to those in need then we really can’t expect compassion and kindness when we find ourselves to be in trouble - as we most surely will be one day.
It works on a smaller scale too. If one isn’t prepared to be generous to ones neighbour, whether ones neighbour is a newly arrived immigrant or the old buffer next door, then one really can’t expect help in ones own hour of need.
Religion may have given the world a lot of wars and silly superstitions, but ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you’ would seem to be the only ‘right’ way to live.
As for Apple extending iCloud subs for free, well. That’s just good business. Move along, nothing to see.
