After a long three month hiatus, the Student Insurgent has finally published another issue.
I was going to propose, for our Hack Attack issue, that we just publish blank space and have a caption asking, “Where were the other publications this year?” But alas (or maybe hooray) they managed to spew out another amazing issue, featuring gems such as:
Ants truly use the motto, “e Pluribus Unum,” out of many one.
Next, you’re going to tell me that ants Trust In God, as well, right?
If you want a better world, you could do worse than having ants as role models.
-Brian Kvenvolden is a prisoner of war (emphasis mine) in the Wisconsin Prison Industrial Complex.
Great, all we need: prisoners telling us to better our world by following ants.
Regarding state aggression
…all this has done is forced it (state aggression) to be covered up with hegemonic words such as “democracy” and “free-market”
Because democracy and free markets are just about as hegemonic as hegemonic or imperial kingdoms.
In France (higher education) is 99% free. If you are not dependent on student loans, your parents, a job, or all of the above, imagine the possibilities. If you could easily brush off a term to protest, wouldn’t we see more action?
I’m sure the reason people aren’t protesting is because they all have to pay for school. Not because they just don’t care, and not because protesting is for the bandwagon, cliche, ineffective, and overrated.
Regarding WOPR (Western Oregon Plans Revisions)
We cordially invite you to stay in Oregon ALL summer so that you can be a part of whatever reaction we might all have to the final BLM decision on WOPR...
Sounds amazing. I’ll be sure to mark staying in Oregon to react to a BLM decision as my most exciting summer plan. And you wonder why students and other people are not interested in protesting.
The new issue of the Insurgent was the talk of the campus today, as well. My hippie double-nose ring travelmug Arabic classmate was candidly quoted, “The Insurgent is better than the Commentator. I think they both suck, but the Commentator is worse.” I suppose we have a lot to aspire to, then!
