The Life You Can Save
The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty | Peter Singer
1 post | 4 read | 7 to read
For the first time in history, eradicating world poverty is within our reach. Yet around the world, a billion people struggle to live each day on less than many of us pay for bottled water. In The Life You Can Save, Peter Singer uses ethical arguments, illuminating examples, and case studies of charitable giving to show that our current response to world poverty is not only insufficient but morally indefensible. The Life You Can Save teaches us to be a part of the solution, helping others as we help ourselves.

My current real-life TBR stack, sorted by how long I have until the library sends a SWAT team through my window to reclaim it (I owe them $8 which is the library equivalent of like $10,000)

Foxyfictionista That's shameful. I do it all the time and my mom was a librarian before she retired. I like to think that racking up fines is my way of rebelling. 😂 6y
RealLifeReading $8!! I owe $2.25 and I feel guilty.. 6y
merelybookish I like to think paying fines is how I help support the library. 6y
