Props to Dwyane Wade

Proving once again that the power of individual charity is greater than anything government could do.

What could government have done to equal that, except by coercing others? Such coercion only discourages people from producing, in two ways. Those who labor know that a portion of their property will be stolen to be given to others. And others will work less, or not work at all, knowing that their lives can be paid for by others' taxes.

I can only imagine how much Wade pays in taxes, and he still is very charitable. You're a good man, Dwyane.

Great post! More people need to realize that socialism only leads to less production and that private philanthropy does happen, especially when the burden of taxes is taken off a person or organization. The corporation bashers really need to look at companies like Google and people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates before saying the wealthy only care about money.
