Giving is Giving, so What’s the Difference?

I just received notice that my employer’s annual charity campaign is about to gear up. Each employee is encouraged to help our fellow citizens by ponying up, and by doing so en masse at work, we help charities lessen the cost of soliciting funds. It’s a great idea in theory.

Divide and Conquer: How Animal Advocates Always Manage to Lose

Divide and Conquer. It’s one of the oldest and most effective strategies for getting and holding power. Divide and Conquer works by creating in-fighting within a group of people.
