Charity and Good Works are religious obligations (for some christians) that maintain/enforce the hierarchy and divisions between those who give and those who receive. Mutual aid erases those divisions with the implicit understanding/hope/practice that giving freely will continually be paid forward and might even come back around. Without the possibility and/or potential of getting something at some point from someone, there's nothing mutual; such giving is charity. The social and interpersonal dynamic is totally different. Fuck your moralizing.
