I think MIT has an obligation to create an environment of inquiry and passion. RSS creator Aaron Schwartz might have led movement(s) for social justice in America (in other countries known as "everyday life" with affordable health care and education, a viable social safety net, minimal gun violence, etc.) He ended up cut down in the prime of his life due to MIT's actions. Will MIT capitalize on professors like Noam Chomsky? Will they inspire a student body that could do truly great things in the age of technology were they to listen to their spiritual calling, and be informed and encouraged by their university? Let's hear from MIT their plans for the student body, and how they'll protect the next Schwartz. And let's help, as requested, to make it happen.
