For the last few years , on and off , I've been having arguments of varying intensity about whether there exists people who are genuinely good. By good , I mean generous of their time and concern for others. People who go out of their way to help others and genuinely expect nothing in return , some acting alone , others in the voluntary sector. But , what amazes me is how so many think that just about nobody does this unless they think they can get something out of it or unless they're a bit freakish , religious or otherwise. The number of young people who hold this view has shocked me.
Yet , I personally believe that there are people around who have no ulterior motives and feel it their duty to help others where possible.
