you are not so much being generous as voluntarily paying more tax, for many charities are de facto subcontractors to the State. The government is usually by far the largest single donor.
Therefore you should remember that
he who pays the piper calls the tune.
Such charities, Dalrymple points out, are
misrepresenting themselves to the public.
It is not only financial corruption that you should fear, he says,
but even more the moral corruption of which this dishonesty is an example.
