And rightly so—cultural-historical nationality isn’t the right basis for denying to some of the disadvantaged in the territory aid that is given to others. No doubt, the presence of excluded minorities would interfere with peace and order in Norway, in ways that inhibit the project of cultivating and passing along the culture inherited from the Vikings. But someone born into that culture who only supports inclusion for that instrumental reason shows inadequate respect for those who are also at home in Norway.

In practice, this prerogative of departure from the default position of doing the most for the neediest severely limits duties of people in developed countries to help the poor in developing countries. For the worthwhile causes closest to people’s hearts are apt to be local. 18 Finally, the concern for neediness that Sympathy requires is limited by responsibilities to others due to specific interactions with them, including responsibilities to be specially concerned for those to whom one stands in valuable special relationships.

Most people think that these duties are generated by relationships that do not extend 30 kindness and its limits to foreigners, as well. Partly on this basis, they would condemn political choices that neglect compatriots with significant needs in order to help foreigners with more serious needs. However, an important trend among philosophers argues from political duties to compatriots to a demanding political duty to help the foreign poor. Agreeing with most people that we have demanding duties to help disadvantaged compatriots if further obligations to foreigners are put to one side, these philosophers claim that those responsibilities within borders are due to economic interdependence, a tie that now binds people throughout the world.
