Oxfam so loves the poor, writes Dalrymple,
that it is safe to predict that it will never abolish itself no matter how rich humanity becomes.
There is no market, he says,
in which there is no rigging, either formal or informal, but I suspect that Oxfam’s preferred solution to an inevitable degree of rigging is complete rigging by philosopher-kings such as themselves.
The bogus charity’s propaganda, Dalrymple points out,
is an incitement to envy, one of the seven deadly sins.
