A Liberal's Version of "A CHRISTMAS CAROL" [Scrooge]

Ironically, a very old version of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol' is just playing on television, while the world is debating Pope Francis' attacks on capitalism.

So what exactly happens in the story of Scrooge?

At the end, Scrooge VOLUNTARILY chooses to give some of his wealth to his employee's family and to others in his neighborhood.

By contrast, note what did NOT happen.  Nobody came and took anything of Scrooge's by force.   In fact, the entire drama centers around persuading Scrooge to voluntarily change his outlook.  What we don't see is any government involvement or role.
