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.”

The critics of Referendum No. 3 distract us from important realities about Palestinian oppression

“Whether it is the CJL cynically promoting Jewish unity against solidarity with Palestinians, or Jacob Katz chastising people for taking a stance after he has done the same many times over, we should be wary of rhetoric that seeks to divert us from trying to grasp and deal with the conflict in the region.”

Bureaucracies like Princeton trust the science until they don’t

Just as the state preaches the gospel of science while withholding life-saving vaccines, so too are we put in a position where we must ignore health science at the expense of others because of the built-in incentive structures around us that offer no apparent alternatives. So, instead of buying into the condescending call for people to trust the science, we should consider building the kind of structural support that allows them to do just that.

Matter over mind: You’ll get out of this what it’s willing to give

“The issue with society’s focus on mindsets is not that the model is completely bogus — it is true that we should believe in our ability to grow and improve, and we shouldn’t become completely defeated when we fall short.”

Someone doesn’t think you have time to read this

“The combination of institutional and peer pressure to view academic productivity as paramount harms us all, and has only intensified during the pandemic. But the reality is that we are more than our roles as students. We need time away from academics.”

Reactions: The Honor Committee gauntlet

The ‘Prince’ recently released a detailed article tracing eight students who faced accusations of violating the Honor Code. We asked ‘Prince’ columnists and community members for their Reactions to these new revelations about the Honor Committee.

The ‘Princeton Plague’ goes national

“At Princeton, we often wonder if our physical and mental struggles, along with how we choose to cope with and manage them, are ‘normal’ or ‘legitimate.’ Consequently, we continue to attend classes even when we shouldn’t from a medical or self-care perspective, endangering ourselves and those around us. As arduous as the academic environment may be, we do not make such choices out of necessity alone.”

In a just world, Princeton as we know it does not exist

“No matter how many people go through sensitivity training, no matter how diverse the pool of incoming academics, and no matter how much people are permitted to theorize about the impact of racism on society, Princeton will not become an anti-racist force until it is no longer recognizable as Princeton by those who currently know it.”

Joshua Katz allegations: Surprising to no one

Without a restructuring of the very academic world that elevated Katz, dynamics like those recently asserted by some alumni will continue to be perpetuated by a culture that convinces a small group of people that they are above the rest of us.
