CARE Now Demands

A fellow student commenter requested that I upload CARE Now’s 12-point request to President Mandel, emailed to the student body on April 17th. I won’t add anything to the discussion at this time, but I encourage all to read:

Paging Christopher Guest. The subject for your next mockumentary is here.

A roomful of America’s best satirists could not hope to improve upon the tone of dolorous, self importance here.

What absurd arrogance to think that a bunch of kids who have probably never even held a job are going to reorder society from on high by fiat. Good luck with that.

What happens when you admit legions of students who cannot hack the academic workload at Williams?

They get drawn into chasing windmills like this.

“We demand the establishment of enrollment options and teaching fellowships in
Native Studies, Trans Studies, Disability Studies, and Fat Studies.”

You couldn’t make this up if you tried.

Some good background on the religious movement filling CARE followers with spiritual fire from Williams Political Science prof Darel E. Paul:

So the deadline came and went and it’s the sound of one hand clapping in the forest?

As bad as the partially literate “manifesto” looks, it looks even worse to proclaim a deadline and then do nothing when you are ignored. All that does is teach the administration to ignore you next time.

So either occupy a building or do something equally pointless. But at least do something.

Or stop issuing deadlines.

It’s not so easy to organize a building occupation when your parents, grandparents and siblings can click on YouTube and see you foolishly wasting your precious opportunities at Williams College by behaving like a vulgar, hateful, anti-white bigot.

CARE Now extended the deadline to May 1. They claim they expect a response from administration by the end of the week.
