I have been overseeing a project to create a repository of commons myths and misconceptions associated with effective altruism and charity. In addition to coordinating and editing volunteer contributions, I have written some pieces myself:

Does aid make low-income countries dependent on handouts?

Do effective animal advocates only care about farmed animals?

Shouldn't we address human suffering before working to reduce animal suffering?

Do effective altruists only value short-term, measurable outcomes?

If I pay my taxes, why should I also give to charity?

Can an individual donor really make a difference?

Can foreign aid and international charity make a difference?
