One can help the more able
Some cultivate the view that one cannot help more intelligent, more skilled and more moral ones than what one oneself is. But that is not at all so. Whenever in human contacts or in groups, it matters a lot what the others are like and how they behave. Like if you are on a trip, it matters that also the children can walk some distancies by themselves. Or hat all carry their part of the things taken along.. And that they offer information. And that they do not attack against moral. That they participate in discussions with the intention to understand, and learn, and take those things morally into account in practise. Also if it a question of protection,one can well protect the more able, since two is usually a bigger opponent than just one, and three is even bigger. And taking part even though not fighting is better than betraying. Behaving in civilized ways it is not so big difference between people of different caliber. Interfering with the lives or responsibilities of others is a different things than helping and doing one's part. I wonder how one can be so mistaken to think that one should interfere even if one does not understand differencies like these?
