NYU Protest Ends With A Whimper…

Full post here.

Perhaps much as the zealots in the global warming debate are are best met and handled by scientific debate…where habits of intellectual curiosity, openness of mind and rational debate provide grounds for discussion…

…so too the NYU university code of conduct is quite enough to provide grounds to allow such youthful political idealism to run it’s course (hard not to laugh at the video).

Apparently, you don’t need to go as far as George Will went in the global warming debate.

…and do you remember Robert Bork’s book?

This is a lot to ask of (S)cience…

  1. Take Back NYU rocks!

    I love those guys! A team of the world’s best comedic screenwriters could not have scripted their pathetic last stand to play out any funnier. Corporate Water???? That’s the most patently bourgeois thing I’ve heard in a long time. Water is bad, Apple is good? Take Back NYU! is going to ruin the Apple brand altogether; Apple is marketed for slackers, NOT hippies.

    And why did Take Back! narrow their goals when they were doing so well and capturing the imagination of the worldwide public? Why did they not fight to achieve protection for the Cape Fear River shiner, one of the most endangered fishes in North America? Or fight to replace the hurtful “MILF” genre of adult film with the less judgemental “experienced women” title?

    If only they had not been so pragmatic, this really could have been a changed world. . .
