Policy On Charity

Charity begins and to some degree ends, at home. The state nor its affiliates are a proper source of charitable giving. Nor ought the state to be involved in speculative ventures. AID is a perverse and dishonest activity no nation ought to permit.

Social Positivists promotes the privatization of all charitable activities. Charity must arise out of a desire to give. There must exists the desire to see one option fulfilled in contrast to all other possibilities. For this to be done honestly requires the act to have real costs attached. When charity is pursued through state agencies there are not real costs attached to the choice selected. Thus too much of state sponsored charity is political in nature or in pursuit of a social agenda; as opposed to the relative needs of the receipient.
