An obligation is something one assumes, unless it is a negative
obligation like the obligation not to harm others. I have not chosen to
assume responsibility for people I don't know who live thousands of
miles away. If this "obligation" is foisted on me, it is slavery.

You can do as you please to help people in any way you wish. I really
don't see why you care what I do or don't do.
