Of course it's self satisfying. Does that mean we should cease to be charitable? That's a horrible excuse.
No, of course you should not stop but be honest with yourself. I live in the same world where charity is a necessity, we must have the ambition that no one requires charity but a natural right to provide for those who stumble.
My gripe is with those exhibitionist super rich who make great show of charity while probably robbing those they pretend to help. A charity ball that costs more to arrange than they manage to gather in charity.
