We need to talk about [the psychedelic investor class] supporting the police, the military, and violent white supremacism
…[a] willingness to accept funding from all-things-conservative financier Rebekah Mercer and ATAI Life Sciences’ founder Christian Angermayer, and its unwillingness to speak out against Peter Thiel, the chairman of Palantir and recent investor in defense-contractor startup Anduril.
As long as its strategy relies on supporting the police and the military (institutions that exist to perpetuate white supremacism, class warfare, and imperialism) it’s not tenable for MAPS and its PBC to claim that they’re invested in “working every day to integrate a deeper anti-racist practice into [their] work.” Nor is it reasonable for them to assert that they’re committed to “doing the work for collective liberation,” as long as they’re accepting money from fascist oligarchs.
