Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I wrote an essay similar to this:

Abolish Philanthropy

I separate charity (an individual giving a small amount for a specific purpose) and philanthropy (a wealthy individual giving a large amount to affect social policy).

Charity may be good for the soul. Philanthropy is anti-democratic.
