Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 27, No. 10. 1964.

Few too Many?

Few too Many?


Your article writer. Julian Rayner, hath written in Salient No. 8 that many are blamed for few. What he or she, fails to appreciate is that the few are blamed by many for what the latter only presume to be "dubious activities." Usually the basis for their judgment (if we do not too much abuse the term) is provided gratis (and swallowed en mass) by such fair arbiters of justice and learned truth-seekers as the lads of the popular Press who are quick to indulge to absurd lengths their incredible anti-student prejudice. They provide both stimulant and excuse for such outbursts of Ignorant smug hypocrisy as typified by Rayner's article. We, of course, would not begrudge stone-throwers the warmth of righteous anger their activity gives them: never-the less (although we may well spoil their fun and faith in the bourgeois Press) we recommend any such person to read chapter XI of Thouless's "Straight And Crooked Thinking."
