“Before you rant, repost, or ridicule, read the bills that legislators introduce and the decisions that judges hand down. Engage in thoughtful, non-reactionary discourse. Only that mindset will allow us to progress beyond our grievance-heavy political battles toward solutions.”

246 years ago, our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence. They risked their lives, property, and sacred honor for a fight bigger than any one man: the fight for freedom. From their bravery and wisdom came the greatest country in the history of the world. We at the Thinker are grateful today and every day to live in the United States of America. Happy 4th of July!

At the IOP event, Schmidt repeated to Psaki her endorsement of the unlawful protests. Psaki interrupted Schmidt after quoting her saying that “we certainly continue to encourage [people protest] outside of judges’ homes,” claiming that she “never said that.”

“I said peacefully,” Psaki interjected, later adding that she “never encouraged anyone to protest.”

A sophomore at Union College, a liberal arts college in New York that receives federal funding, has been expelled for refusing to get a COVID booster shot, even though her doctor wrote a letter to the college warning that her getting a booster shot is “ill-advised” because she is experiencing severe health problems “presumably caused by the vaccine itself.”

“By asking Qi to debate me, I merely extended the public dialogue she started,” Schmidt told the Thinker. “I did so publicly, as I wanted to demonstrate that students like her are unwilling to defend their beliefs after being challenged. The fact that I was unceremoniously fired without a meeting only proves my point.”

On Friday, February 4, “UChicago Forward Communications,” which anonymously dispatches weekly COVID updates to the UChicago community, announced that the school has reinstated its mask mandate carveout for students and professors actively speaking, perhaps thanks to Thinker Vice President and deaf UChicago student Declan Hurley.

"We cannot fight by simply pushing our own values on leftists. This would result in failure just like Superman’s attempt to imprison pretended heroes. Instead, great writers need to focus on writing great stories for these characters; brilliant narratives will eventually shine through the DEI fog." Read the article by Chad Berkich on our website.

“Open up our campus,” said Jackson. “It’s time that our university becomes a model for asking questions and setting the trend, instead of just following after the city [of Chicago].”
