The meaning of Ubuntu

Two African philosophers walking down the village road, high on ideology.

“My brother,” says the first one to the other… “If you have two aeroplanes, will you give one to your fellow man?”

The other considers, then nods, deep in thought. “Yes, my brother. I will.”

The first one continues to press: “My brother, if you have two boats, will you give one to your brother African?”

The other considers, pondering the meaning of the question. “Yes, my brother, I will.”

The first one then asks: “My brother, if you have two cows, will you give one to your brother?”

“No,” the other one replies.

“But why not?”

“Because I have two cows.”
