Recently, the Guggenheim - a prestigious museum and arts endowment foundation - was found to have accepted funding from a wealthy family with ties to the notorious drug, OxyContin. Protesters picketed the museum in disgust, outraged that a drug which has claimed so many lives was now connected to an organization with so much clout and influence.
Personally, I don't see this as being cause for outrage in and of itself. My issue is not so much that the profits from a drug like OxyContin were used to fund the arts, but that a drug which causes much pain and suffering has not been taken off the market, or at least reevaluated for general use.
How do you feel about this issue? weight in here, and I look forward to hearing your opinions! (:
