What Do You Support and Why Do You Support It?
What sort of organizations or causes do you regularly support? Are they usually local causes or national/international projects? When serious First Amendment problems come up, many folks say, "Go to the ACLU"-yet one might wonder how many people giving this advice actually send money to the ACLU to help them respond to these requests. What criteria do you look at when making a decision to support or not to support some project, cause or organization? Given the situation surrounding Napster, do you think that people are basically greedy and self-centered and will take whatever they can get for free-or does humanity really have an altruistic streak which urges us to help others and support causes that we believe in? What do you financially or as a volunteer support-and why? Or why not?

I tend to support organizations on a case-by-case basis and do not regularly support any organization. If a specific issue comes up that I feel warrants my contribution, I will support it and will be reasonably certain my money will go to addressing that issue.
Too many times, even very respectable organizations, especially civil rights organizations will be too eager to jump on a bandwagon without thinking the issue through and will end up pushing the pendulum in the wrong direction, having said that, I think people are basically altruistic as long as they are left alone. The problem is that there are too many strings attatched to the publics nose; religion, politics, ethics, marketing.. etc. Each and every one of us needs to cut those strings and stop doing things because someone convinces us they are right. We should do something after we have found out for ourselves that it is right. Picket Washington when an elected official goes back on a campaign promise . Learn about a religion instead of just sitting in a church and absorbing what the preacher says . Think about the product and not the advertising Demand the problem get fixed instead of finding someone to blame
