Pondering the Exploitation of Adjunct Faculty
There's a great blog post at National Review by Victor Davis Hanson from this afternoon. It pretty much summarizes the gray socialism that is the humanities in academia. "Some animals are more equal than others," according to one Eric Blair. And it's worth pointing out that the left in academia is a huge influence in government policy these days. So if we were to abolish a corrupt tenure system that rewards fairy-land socialism and punishes realism, would government policy begin to reflect a bit of sanity after a few years? It's fun to think about!
