Treason of the academics …

… When Literary Theory Lost Its Conscience | RealClearReligion.
The more reflective and intuitive the students, Ruddick observes, the deeper their psychic malaise under the pressure to conform to “an immorality they can’t put their fingers on,” one in which the slightest value judgment—even against pedophiliac themes—equates bourgeois naiveté. With radical politics fostering an aversion to ideals that non-academics and ordinary people hold dear, students find themselves relinquishing the soul which enabled them to be moved by a poem or novel in the first place.
