We won't give without asking anyting in return

Little kid overheard in public transport:

'Mommy, why are people angry with Alexandra?'
-'Alexandra is Greek, darling.'
'But why are people mad at her?'
-'Because the Greek government can't pay it's bills.'
'Why can't they pay their bills?
-'Because they don't have enough money.'
'Why is that Alexandra's fault?'
-'Because people like to blame individuals for what groups of others do.'
'Why?'
-'Because a lot of people are stupid and biased.'
'But can't we give money to Greece?'
-'We did but they can't give it back and people don't want to give money without something in return.'
'But you give me allowance, don't you? Without asking anything in return?'
-'Yes?'
'Why don't they give Greece some allowance?'
