1.) The ULA is a radical organization.
2.) Most writers have no value in society or the marketplace because they place no value on themselves. One of my frustrations with the ULA has been that it's almost impossible to find writers who won't sell out (t hemselves and their principles) in the blink of an eyelash. Most writers are so desperate to be published that a conglomerate could toss a five dollar bill on the sidewalk, in the middle of dog shit, and the writer would be crawling like a dog to retrieve it.
It's like the panel of editors in NYC which I wrote about in an issue of New Philistine. At the conclusion of the bland and meaningless "discussion" there was a feeding frenzy of all the wannabe writers in the audience converging to the front, geniuses in their own minds exhibiting not a gram of self-respect or character as they fawned over the four mediocrities posing as "distinguished editors." It was sickening.
