We should not have billionaires paying for our infrastructure. Why? It is the responsibility of the government, the people, to take care of themselves. Having philanthropist donate money may hurt the development of society and it undermines the responsibility of society.
The philanthropist gets the glory of acknowledgement. What happens when the hype subsides, the money runs out, is illegal money or the philanthropist passes away? The people are left with nothing or worse with guilt and illegal money.
We have taxes and inspectors to take care of these needs.
If our government cannot pay for our infrastructure our priorities must be wrong.
Please do donate to help others but don’t donate for headlines. Donating for the glory of acknowledgement is taking and not giving.
Everyone is taxed and we all share the burden of society which is the way it must be.
