Re: “Revolution Rock: Musicians Offer Protest Against Arizona's New Immigration Law

The problem with a boycott is it's collective punishment. You probably will have little effect on those who truly deserve to be punished for the terror they have inflicted on so many and you hurt those who are already suffering.
The word Boycott came from my country and a boycott is preferable to violence but it was originally used against the cause of the problem, the nasty Captain Boycott. It targetting the source.
Nowadays boycotts, embargos and sanctions all cause pain to the majority who did not cause the problem. How many kids died in Iraq under Saddam because we didn't send them medicine?
How many families suffered for so long being separated from family in Cuba?
I remember my son crying when he came home from school on seeing a sign on a neighbor's door that read Boycott everything French. It was the time of Bush's "freedom fries" and my son had just studied the Holocaust in school. He knew it was wrong to demonize a large group of people like that.
Let's not punish people who had nothing to do with this nasty racist law.
Just as it's wrong for a teacher to punish a whole class for something an individual did, so it's wrong to punish Arizona.
Direct the punishments (non violent) firmly against Jan Brewer and those who wrote the law and the brutal and ignorant Sheriff Arpaio.
Getting people to vote is a positive step. In dark times, people need art to lift them out of sorrow. Don't deprive them further.
I'm thrilled Glen and mar are taking the right road.
