“Although overturning Roe, in my opinion, is a move in the right direction, it does not and should not be the end of the pro-life movement’s efforts. We need to support women who become pregnant, so that they are not forced to make a decision that they will regret or that could harm themselves or others.”

More heat than light: performative activism, on campus and beyond

“Each of us has causes that are dear to us. But when we are confronted by those focusing on Instagram posts or publicly inflammatory comments instead of on the issues themselves, we must remind ourselves not to lose sight of why we care in the first place, and of the hard, nuanced work that is necessary to achieve tangible progress.”

Letter from the Editor: Help us understand how best to serve you

“With each passing year, new issues land on our pages, while others are reborn from previous generations. Unlike our predecessors, however, today’s student journalists must think in equal parts about how to capture these stories and deliver them to our readers.”

Burn down the eating clubs

“It doesn’t matter if a club’s membership brands itself as woke, progressive, liberal, inclusive, chill, or diverse: they largely fail to look past their own moral superiority to see that they actively recreate the same racist, sexist, exclusionary dynamics that they claim to be against.”

The Editorial Board should know better than to blame “both sides.” Activism for Palestine lost out.

“It did not hesitate, however, to equate Palestine activists with their opposition in actions for which only the latter are responsible.”

On the politics of identity

“Over the years, as LGBTQ+ artists and people in the U.S. gained cultural and political ground, I began to loosen my own fierce personal and professional commitments to identity politics.”

Letter from the Editor: Queer Remembrances, Queer Futures

“We conceive of this more than anything as an invitation to the queer community on campus. An invitation can only be truly genuine when it goes beyond empty words: The content curated for this issue represents a public record — and a public commitment — to elevating the voices and stories of queer folks in our pages.”

USG has abandoned their democratic principles

“Princeton students are asked to take USG seriously as a truly representative body, but they have now thrown out this legitimacy in favor of appeasing a small, angry group of students. Going forward, it will be on them to earn our trust back and on us to hold them accountable.”

Banning books is detrimental to intellectual growth

“A myriad of books in the world today capture both the good and the bad of life, from joy and accomplishment to death and grief. Having the opportunity to freely read these books and thoughtfully explore the ideas they express allows us to come away with meaningful, valuable insights about ourselves and the world around us.”

160 Princeton faculty and staff members: The University must fully divest from fossil fuels

“As the world rapidly disengages from carbon-emitting energy sources by clear necessity, we believe it incompatible with the University’s moral principles to seek profit from continued investment in fossil fuels.”

Ramadan reflections: How Princeton can support its Muslim student population

“Given how the Muslim community has expanded throughout the past few years, and Ramadan will be a time the University has to navigate consistently in the future, there needs to be stronger leadership and collaboration with Muslim students to provide an optimal fasting experience on campus.”
