  1. This is an excellent exchange. I used to belong to Amnesty International. I still get their mail solicitations.

    Their mail solicitations continue to promote the kind of work they USED to do. This is mis-leading; deliberately so. Amnesty International’s publicity machine is usually directed toward institutions of democracy.

    Above all, the organization rarely, if ever, confronts the use of torture anymore. That used to be Amnesty International’s first order of business. It was what “Human Rights” were all about; eliminating torture.

    It’s nice to know there are moderately conservative folks (Canadian Conservatives tend to be a more centrist than their American counterparts) who used to respect Amnesty International. It’s also nice to hear them explain why they respected that organization.

    Today, AI is just another George Soros publicity stunt.
