The genius of (past) progressives

As I read articles regarding charities protesting the tax legislation recently signed into law, I am in awe of the genius of the progressives, now long dead, who foisted the progressive income tax upon us. Mind you, these progressives are long dead – none of the machinations of the current breed of progressive can compare to the forethought and intricacies of their past masters.

I mean: think about it. They put something into the tax code to turn charities – churches, and the like – into instruments by which to prevent their masterpiece from being dismantled! Rather than expecting that people are charitable by nature, giving of their excess, they have been jaded by a century of “charitable deductions” to believe that their life’s blood is a gift from government rather than a gift from their donors.

Shear genius.
