Half? Fuck that noise. Even if you give up 90% of a billion, you've still got a double metric shitload of money.
Pish posh. By the time he died, Andrew Carnegie had given away more than 90% of his fortune.
When a billionaire gives away half their net worth, they still have, at minimum, $500 million to their name.
1% of a billion dollars is $10,000,000. If I can convince the poorest billionaire to donate 1% of their net worth to African malaria treatment, I will have accomplished far more than I could possibly do by canceling my Internet connection
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny.
Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on."
You didn't really think this through. Microsoft used its monopoly to extract excessive profits from its customers, that is a legal verdict. That money didn't just materialize in the pockets of Mr. Wm. Gates the Third, he got the money by stealing it from customers, that includes governments, schools and universities, and yes, even charities.
Those who set themselves beyond Justice,cramming their homes with riches,overstep the bounds of what is best.Let each man have enough, no more,let him know the limit of his needs,then we might avoid this suffering.There can be no defense for the manwho gorges himself with the fat of wealth,and kicks the altar of Justice far from sight.-- Aeschylus
