well I am quite bemused by your quiet confidence in government. its entirely 

government is the last organisation in the world upon which we should depend 
on for philantropy. it is a vastly slow, inefficient, wasteful and 
redistributes against the wishes of many from whom it steals and makes no 
effort to determine if its handouts and favors actually have any real benefit 
or just create a class of handout victims.

for your information david, I sponsor numerous projects, so dont accuse me of 
not having any knowledge of philantropy.
