The Sultans of America and Their Harems

It’s tempting to say that we’ve woken up — that we’re unwilling to allow fame and money and power to excuse abuse, and we’re not going to go back to the old way anymore. But that would be too sanguine. So long as fame and money and power exist, there will be those who seek to exploit them and those who look the other way. False idols always have their adherents.

It’s our job to ensure that the idols remain smashed. And that means recanting our own idolatry for a cultural sultanate that deserves to be torn down.
