“Consider: What is the contemporary version of “academic art” (and literature)?  What are its concerns, its vision, its impact? Are universities structurally reactionary with a soft spot for illiberal ideas? Put another way, what is it about the university that turns the mildest of people into raging totalitarians? These questions are not merely academic. The only satisfactory answer is to sidestep these issues altogether by restoring the dynamism of civil society, one that has autonomy from academic discourse.”
