Columbia grew a set of cojones and told all student protesters that if they don't disperse by 2:00pm they'll be suspended. Hopefully other schools follow suit.

This in-fighting between the extremist wing and mainstream/establishment wing of the Democratic Party is hurting Joe Biden in the poll, along with a poor economy and high inflation. Time to stop this shenanigan, go back to debate what concerns everyday Americans and Joe would have a much better chance come November.

“First, I must confess that over the last few years I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate… The white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises… to wait until a "more convenient season."’

Looks like Columbia kept their word and started suspending students. And Cornell has begun to do the same. Maybe they can finish their studies at Sophia...

Very interesting MLK Jr. quote, could you explain your understanding of the end part of it? I tried to google explainers for this quote and nothing comes up. I would love to get a deeper context for this. Why he thought that expressed respect for the law. I don't have an agenda and am not being snarky, genuinely curious and wanting to understand, I find myself agreeing and want to understand the meaning deeper.

It was from a letter that Dr. King wrote while imprisoned in a Birmingham jail for protesting segregation. He essentially meant that it is just to disobey or break unjust laws. He was referring to segregation, voting rights for Black citizens, things of that nature. He went on to point out that everything Hitler did was technically "legal", but that people shouldn't passively accept evil things done under the guise of law, because doing so is perpetuating evil. 


Quote:"I would be the first to advocate obeying just laws. One has not only a legal but a moral responsibility to obey just laws," he wrote. "Conversely, one has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws. I would agree with St. Augustine that 'an unjust law is no law at all.'"

Nonviolent yet physically disruptive protests are a cost of living in a free country. If we went too long without such protests I'd be worried that the country had become less free.
