This article is horrendously overwritten, but basically right on and extremely important. I love the line about academia defining democracy as "submission to the intelligensia". Orwell basically wrote the same thing about 50 years ago in "Politics and the English Language", but the problem is no less a concern then it was then, and probably more so. The article also drives home the point that most Americans simply don't know what these people think and say most of the time. I'm beginning to think that the best way to fight the academic Left is to quote their lines to the widest possible audience. What they actually think and say seems to cause more revulsion and anger then any critical essay could ever hope to do.
