"The UK has a large and very diverse voluntary sector with an income of £55 billion this year. Worryingly, charities are increasingly being co-opted into the apparatus of the state and being turned into dirigiste organisations reliant upon and supportive of state aid. This is not just a logical fallacy -- organisations supported via taxation cannot ipso facto be termed charities -- but a serious problem." (10/31/11)
