"True generosity consists precisely
in fighting to destroy the causes which nourish false charity. False charity
constrains the fearful and subdued, the 'rejects of life,' to extend their
trembling hands. True generosity lies in striving so that these hands - whether
of individuals or entire peoples - need be extended less and less in
supplication, so that more and more they become human hands which work and,
working, transform the world." Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed.
