The Honorable Scrooge

Standard

Ebenezer Scrooge was an honorable man because his conversion from hard-heartedness to soft-heartedness was personal. He didn’t ask others to subsidize his new-found generosity.

Scrooge stands in sharp contrast to judges and other government officials who “grow” in office, as liberals like to put it. What it means to “grow” in office is to foster an intrusive, costly government that undermines self-reliance and usurps and destroys the voluntary institutions of society and their civilizing codes of conduct.
