Yeah sure, fine, maybe after all of the medical research projects, vaccine clinics in underserved areas in the US and abroad, and partner programs with universities in the developing world are done. Otherwise gently caress university admins and people who exist only to make sure donors fee-fees arenít hurt and the endowments are replenished.

I had a low opinion of my university admins as they didnít seem to do anything. Then friends became professors and I realized how much worse it is when theyíre refusing to allow minor punishments for flagrant plagiarism if the student is paying full ticket price, not processing critical benefit paperwork, or sending out multiple emails a day about how the university stands on current events when no one asked.

Theyíre so bad at this.

Theyíre alienating everyone. The Tom Cotton types are not going to love them back.

They're not bad at this, this is what they want. There's no platonic ideal of university administrators who want open debate and learning, their goal is to protect the reputations of the people who give them money. And since the money is overwhelmingly pro-imperialism that will always be the position of people in power.

It feels conspiratorial to type out, but the the people who raise funds for universities are beholden to the same people who own our arms dealers. There's no realistic way to make them take the moral high ground instead of the stance that dumps literal billions into weapons manufacturers as long as that's true.

Man if you don't get arrested in college you didn't do undergrad right. :c00l:

Interesting statement from the Emerson President here: https://today.emerson.edu/2024/04/2...king%20arrests.

tl;dr it was the city escalating things there and the college isn't going to punish any students, sent staff to all the precincts, and bailed students out

Unironically good for them. Now those kids have a bragging rights story.

It's literally a textbook conspiracy yes. This is the real bullshit illuminati that runs the world. Just guys hoping to kill the bad poor who don't consume their poo poo.

Isnít it just collusion is if itís not trying to be kept secret? I feel like there is a better word than conspiracy for how universities and endowments work to influence imperial fuckery

I would call it "Blue Falcons in $5000 suits."

We've been governed by greedy sociopaths for at least 90% of the last century.
This is just "business as usual" to them, only now it's happening in places the average American can pronounce and possibly even find on a map.

I feel that this is an important point to clarify.

Does she need bail money?

I will not shut up about the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I talk about them all the time and work them into every conversation I have. I built a shrine in my room for the yellow one who died because sadly no one noticed because she died around 9/11. Wanna see it?

Doesn't the US have a whole mess of laws that functionally make it impossible to boycott or divest business interests in Israel?

I recall there were people in Texas seeking federal aid after a hurricane, and one of the requirements was a certify that they would not engage in any BDS activities.
