I got a natural high reading Dennis McDougal’s interview with Mike Mitchell (“First Live Aid, and Then--the World,” Sept. 8), chief-orchestrator of the Live-Aid telecast.
And to his question, “What’s wrong with earning a living while promoting social justice?,” I reply: Nothing! Full-speed ahead!
People like Mitchell give capitalism a good name. We need more propounders of the philosophy that profit does not necessitate exploitation; that, in fact, one can make money while benefiting humankind.
His company’s via-satellite cultural exchanges and invocations for social responsibility will do more for world peace than space-based missile defense and mammoth nuclear arsenals could ever do.
