According to John Arthur, a reasonable moral code would require us to:
Give money to famine relief when there is no significant reduction in our own happiness, or the happiness of our family.
Give food to our own children first, because they have a negative right to such care.
Give only what we truly desire to give to those who are suffering from famine.
Ignore entitlements and focus only on the consequences of our actions.
