On The Walkout

I am disappointed with the editorial board’s decision to regard an MIT anti-war Walkout as a form of “destruction” antithetical to ideals of “reason.” A walkout may be inconvenient for some, but it certainly is not “destructive.” “Destruction” is what will be experienced by the Iraqi people over the days and weeks ahead and what we who live in America might suffer as a predictable consequence of a war allegedly being waged to ensure our security. If the editors regard their education and their ideals of “reason” so fragile that they might be destroyed by a one day walkout, then perhaps they should spend less time discussing and writing ill-conceived editorials and more time in their respective labs, libraries, and Athena clusters.
