"Overall, we should be wary when seeing cultural goods up for sale. Who is it that produced the good？ Who is receiving the profits from the sale? Were fair bargaining conditions in place? Is it something that should be sold? The answers to these questions result in serious consequences for cultures that face exploitation due to loss of economic potential and commodification."

...In this war of methods the verdict of the educated deaf the whole world over is this: the oral method benefits the few; the combined system benefits all the deaf... Anyone who upholds the oral method, as an exclusive method, is their enemy. (in Lane, 1984: 395)
Ladd, Dr. Paddy. Understanding Deaf Culture : In Search of Deafhood
The language used by the Deaf discourses was at times very blunt. McGregor, a Deaf principal of the Ohio school, trenchantly summarised the events of Milan:
The ascendancy of the pure oral method has been attained by methods that the deaf, as honest, law-abiding citizens abhor, detest, despise, abominate... Must not that be false which required for its support so much imposture, so much trickery, so much coercion; which belittles, or utterly ignores, the opinions of its own output?...
Alexander Graham Bell was an open advocate of the eugenics movement and the ideology of Oralism which directly resulted in more than a century's Deaf illiteracy and socio-linguistic oppression against the Deaf community, in case you don't know. He was NOT a humanitarian, even if he thought he was doing good and would be praised as such in the 100 years to come.
