In our interesting (though often incoherent, due to some students blurting out completely disassociated things) discussions on classism, the idea of simply going down to a park handing out sandwiches to some homeless people was mentioned by our teacher. As cliche' and obvious the idea was, it had never truly occured to me to try it sometime. I would hope that the act would not come off as guiltily benevolent, but it inevitably would. I doubt it would resolve my feelings of utter uselessness and ignorant obliviousness to my advantageous welfare, and by that thought it becomes selfish.

I hate our world.
