The proof of the ULA's viability is the hysterical reaction to its very presence.
People read things into it that aren't there. They also show a vast misunderstanding of the nature of our society and our culture.
What we are is a voluntary association, open to anyone willing to support it, whose purpose is to get attention for overlooked writers and artists. Is this bad? Media is power in this country. Those who control the media, or have access to it, have leverage to get their ideas and talent into the mainstream of society. I believe that every artist ultimately desires an audience. The ULA is pursuing one way, one strategy, to find or create said audience. There are other ways, and people are welcome to pursue them.
