The reason why we got a welfare state was that charities did not and could not do the job that was needed.
Nor can they now.
Which is why although I think charity is vital at drawing attention to problems and facilitating the actions of those who want to address them paying tax to maintain essential services will always be more important
Of course I think it\’s vital that charity cash be used to pay activists to draw attention to outmoded political ideologies. That\’s where my largest income comes from after all.
I just don\’t want charitable funds to be used to actually do anything.
That would mean less for activists, wouldn\’t it?
