I always thought human rights was supposed to be a non-selective process  ...............

Another top burner you overlooked, Godfather: The Kanaques (or "Canaques") in New Caledonia.

Supply and demand.

So many causes and so few celebrities.

Besides being individuals who all have their own personal motivations.

Why do they choose this cause and not that cause? Guess one would have to sit down ask the individual celebrity. Hollywood is not an individual.

Motivations  ..........

Hmm .......  !


Lambert and Gardiner, and Spolsky have quite a lot to say about these  human traits  .......

And how complex and complicated they can be from an internal point (intrinsic) of view ........

However, external motivations (extrinsic) are subject shall we say in some if not most cases to the most profit .......


The land of the human being ..........

Hmm .......  !

Yes, like I say; sit down and ask the individual. Otherwise it is all apotheosis and generalizations. And sense we can not interview the individual then it amounts to no more than conjecture.

I agree
