Couldn't agree more, Phil. I have always loathed the idea of charity: its condescension, hubris and pretension. A civilised society will take account of those who have special needs, and provide for those needs through progressive taxation instruments. It is not a matter of one's preening "generosity"; it is a matter of human rights.
