While people are getting 'het' up over my perceived lack of sympathy for the
struggling workers, I'd like to point out that my point is simply this:
Everyone has a right to make their own moral choices, and not have them made
Cancelling the AAAs makes that moral choice for everyone.
Not cancelling the meetings means that people can choose 1) not to attend,
2) to attend but not stay in that hotel, 3) to attend and not even cross the
picket line, 4) to work to relocate events to other venue, and even simply,
5) take a wait and see attitude.
It was my understanding that being liberal means accepting diversity of
opinion, and truly reflects the spirit of anthropology.
Perhaps I was wrong.
