I will be keeping my loose change in my pocket where it belongs this festive season. I have not lost a single night of sleep over Africa and I never will. In fact, I could even cash in on my conscience by starting a record label called ‘Truth in Music’. My first single release will be called ‘I Don’t Give a Hoot About The Starving’. All profits go to me. It may not be the stuff that dreams are made on but, by George, it will have integrity.

Is this now accepted thinking among libertarians/free-marketeers/Randians? My holiday wish for Mr. Carr is a Scrooge-like Christmas-eve transformation.
