vsu homework assignment(i need help real bad)

Write a critical analysis by identifying and assessing the argument in the following passage.

We in the rich nations are like the occupants of a crowded lifeboat adrift in a sea full of drowning people. If we try to save the drowning by bringing them aboard, our boat will be overloaded and we shall all drown. Since it is better that some survive than none, we should leave the others to drown. In the world today ‘lifeboat ethics’ apply. The rich should leave the poor to starve, for otherwise the poor will drag the rich down with them.




Oops! I believe I just addressed that in your other post.
