the charity ecosystem mostly exists to launder systematic injustice into moral superiority. the problems still exist, only now the marginalised and oppressed owe it to you to suck your dick because you threw a few dollars at them
what should be public services are turned into something dependent on private generosity, and moral obligations into supererogations
and while there are orgs that do good work, the larger a charity is, the more likely they are to primarily exist as a way of dodging taxes
don't forget the importance of shaving taxable income down!
