But if we cannot teach, who will learn?  My own radicalisation came from being
with a very good teacher, in many ways. Because she was good and also downright
fascist (she said that Franco was neccessary to restore order in Spain), she
literally scared me into radicalism "to stop people like her".

    I think we should be a lot more concerned about the ability of radical profs
to actually communicate with their students. It goes a long way, does it not?
