Critics of the course of education and higher education have to start by
defining the problem and its dynamic.  Invariably, doing this results in
accusations that you are sanctioning what you're describing or disparaging
alleged achievements of progressives in higher education.  I've encountered
it several times a year for the last few decades.

It's one of the features institutions of higher education have in common
with the old SWP, and the experience in the latter made it possible for me
to understand the middle class mentality central to questions of secular
faith in academe.
