Thoughts on Boycotts

In his Jan. 8 Travel Insider column ("Boycotts Request Travelers to Add Politics to the Itinerary"), Christopher Reynolds said that travelers can "ignore the campaigns and visit anyway, as most individual vacationers do." I was reminded of a sentiment often attributed to British statesman Sir Edmund Burke: "It is necessary only for the good man to do nothing for evil to triumph." It is tragic that the majority of people cannot do something so simple as travel to another destination to help stop atrocities that go on in this world.
