Money talks.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-11704306

You go off to work in the morning. You see a beggar on the street corner. You come home at night. You go off to work in the morning. You see a beggar on the corner.

Eventually you give him a dollar or two.

You just voted with your dollar. You reinforced that behaviour. You said to the world:
"I support beggars and I support having more people in the world standing around asking for money."

It's entirely natural to feel compassion. It's entirely natural to want to help. It's entirely natural to say "OMG we need to do ANYTHING to help our people taken hostage."
You vote with your money.
You negotiate with terrorists and you empower them.
You give money for pirates to release your ship and you just made sure that there will be more pirates next week. Or next year.
