Tenured Radicals

The professors who piss me off the most are the ones who seem to have no awareness that they're dismantling the system that kept them fat and happy all of those years.

You really can't have our contemporary university system without genuine academic freedom (yes, I know, adjuncts don't have it and that sucks but killing it for everyone else doesn't help the adjuncts). It's quite a privilege if you earn the golden ring of tenure, but too many of those who have worn them for all of those years are apparently clueless. It's the "rules can't possibly apply to me" crowd. They won't, until they will.
