Can an advocate maintain his objectivity after receiving recompense from the party that he is advocating to? Can the advocate be true to his cause after that? Will the advocate be beholden to the benefactor? How much is dignity and integrity worth? Not much apparently. Some advocates can be bought over for a pittance. The colour of money can enslave effortlessly and blind these advocates to acts of discrimination. It has. I weep for the disabled people who gave the mandate to these advocates to fight for their rights. They have been shortchanged without even realising it. We should not be blaming society for perpetrating acts of discrimination against disabled people. Disabled people are doing this to their own.
No one can be the slave of two masters; he will either hate the first and love the second, or be attached to the first and despise the second. You cannot be the slave both of God and of money.
(Matthew 6:24, New Jerusalem Bible)
