<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

Why is it their responsibility? That's impractical.


Because they have the ability and it's irresponsible to squander it just because you don't want to.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

Maybe, but then you're asking them to go out and make that change themselves. It's not as simple as throwing an apple to someone instead of throwing it away.


That's just laziness.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

Why?


People starving while you're throwing away the resources they need is incredibly harsh and unsympathetic.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

Are they obligated to give away the things they own?


Legally? No, not usually. Morally? I'd say so, under those specific circumstances.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

Because not living in poverty doesn't directly cause the misfortune of someone else. Someone being so far from trouble that they have the luxury to waste food is a good thing.


Not when they could help others with the opposite problem.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

They're not directly responsible for the harm of others. It'd be different if they were stealing food or something.


How isn't that direct?
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

*Shrugs*
Why?


Because their joy doesn’t matter more than others’ lives.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

What if having that much is part of what brings them joy? Taking that away would rob them of that.


It's not as important as necessity. But to find joy from that and only that would be a problem.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

But who gets to decide what beings have too much or too little?


It's not a matter of who decides, it's a matter of how much can reasonably be used. Hoarding food you can't possibly hope to eat until it goes bad while others starve, just as an example. Holding onto resources greedily that you won't use is why so many suffer.
<Snipped quote by Multifarious>

I've also seen how even "uncivilized" worlds have found the most creative ways to use every single resource.


Sure, it does go both ways.
