How human scale benefits civil society: In American Conservative, Brian Brown explains "why conservatives should reform philanthropy".
"[W]hile today’s conservatives agree that the space is important, they are much more interested in the 'protecting' part than creating and sustaining. They fiercely man the wall, defending the citadel against all threats, while the city inside decays. They do this because they have a flawed understanding of what civil society is, and what is has to offer the social problems of American society. If they had half an idea, they would be leading the charge to reform 'the space between.'" -- Brian Brown, the American Conservative
