Schambra, at Hudson Institute, on philanthropy as civic virtue:
Scientific philanthropy considers itself to be a detached problem solver, funding experts to track down root causes. Civic renewal philanthropy considers itself to be a catalyst of civic engagement, helping to complete the Founding by cultivating democratic self-governance and the moral and civic virtues it requires. Our times demand a philanthropy that prefers citizen over expert.

Don't you want a link that actually documents his conviction, rather than his dismissive attitude towards American courts?
