Glob of Thoughts

I claim three things:

  1. Many people who profess some degree of altruism are not being very effective, despite their good intentions.
  2. Regardless of how ineffective their past decisions were, they can still make a huge difference, by joining the “effective altruism” movement and spreading the message.
  3. Even for those who are only slightly altruistic, it seems good to spend a small amount of time to help spread the word.
