Sic Transit Gloria Mundi

Excellent piece about the perversion of scholarship which has gone hand in hand with the conversion of universities from educational institutions into members of a cynically money-grubbing cartel dedicated to providing lavish salaries to faculty and administrators regardless of the cost to students.

The corporate world sees football players, fraternity brothers and sorority sisters as prime recruits. They have been conditioned to join the team, to surrender moral autonomy, to accept and carry out acts of personal humiliation, to treat with contempt those who oppose them or who are different, to define their life by an infantile narcissism centered on greed and self-promotion and to remain silent about crimes they witness or take part in. It is the very ethic of corporations.

Not all, perhaps. But certainly those where the MBAs have taken over.
