ABUHASHIM | The Best Good for Whom? 

“Cornellians are united by a shared function.” “To do the best good.” These quotes written by Ezra Cornell have been plastered on each identified floor on campus. It begs the query: The best good for whom? This 12 months, Cornell Progressives launched the Disorientation Information, a guide on all of Cornell’s shady enterprise and not-so-known secrets and techniques. Within the information, tales of Cornell’s neglect and greed are overwhelming however not stunning. In 1985, Cornell’s trustees refused to divest from firms in South Africa regardless of the apartheid. Whose “biggest good” have been they striving to realize? Many low-income and BIPOC college students may already testify that they knew this “biggest good” didn’t apply to them, however this information made it clear to the lots. Diving deep into Cornell’s historical past, insurance policies and actions, it’s evident that Cornell’s administration solely caters to itself, the rich majority and the World North.

When Cornell’s most questionable ties are talked about, we’ve to begin with our persistence to be included in struggle crimes. Most notably, Cornell’s joint campus with Technion Institute, whose army analysis is instantly integrated into the continued occupation of Palestine. This institute boasts of analysis on unmanned bulldozers used to destroy Palestinian properties, drone expertise to bombard civilians and different superior army provides used to kill my household.  

The ties to Elbit Techniques must also be thought of since their expertise has been used on the apartheid wall to observe and strip Palestinians of freedom of motion. The information argues that since Cornell Tech is entrenched within the Israeli military-industrial complicated, unknowing college students are uncovered to analysis and expertise that will probably be used to occupy, oppress and dispossess Palestinians. To make issues worse, our ties with Lockheed Martin are a humiliation, with human rights teams explaining that “[their] F-16 fighter jets, Apache helicopters and Hellfire missiles typically failed to differentiate between civilians and combatants.”
