Knowledgeable people know conservatives give more of their own money to charity than progressives do (see Arthur C. Brooks's best seller "Who Really Cares: The Surprising Truth About Compassionate Conservatism"). This Syracuse University professor says he was surprised that liberals were markedly less charitable than conservatives. Obviously then, Scrooge was a liberal who became enlightened and started sharing his own wealth. Liberals see themselves on the caring high ground because they want to give other people's money away but not their own! Amazing.
