The Ayn Rand institute, in the tradition of other Christian evangelical organisms, has started funding campus clubs. Here, they've given the club enough money to publish a newspaper and register a domain name.
This is more recognition than any of these secret "self-abusers" have ever had, so their first paper had to cause a big fuss. Sigh sigh. They had to write not one, but two articles arguing that Native Canadians are poorly off, not because of prejudice, mistreatment, or (understandable) familial maladaption, statistically speaking, to capitalist culture. No, it's because they're too collectivist.
Now, how Natives are any more collectivist than ordinary Canadians is up for grabs. And anyway, assorted student organizations, including the one for which I work, got their panties in quite a bunch indeed. So now I have to write the club a letter saying why they ought to watch their step.
This is my job; I can't refuse. But while I don't like the Objectionables very much, I also don't like shutting them up. I'm going to write that their articles border on hate speech due to a willful disregard for the effects of past abuses (which is true as far as it goes,) but I'm worried that no-one will be able to criticize anyone if this keeps up.
How much do I suck for selling out this much? Remember, I really, really need the money, which is a big reason that I didn't quit, yet anyway.
