Ok I won’t make you type the imgur link by yourself. Academics are supposed to be the brains of the operation and yet when you look at them you see that they are their own kind of prole that has no leisure to speak of through which to cultivate refinement. Journalists are similar- ideally they would be learning from the (free-)academics, and their writings would reflect that. This is because most of our “upper-class” consists of serfs. The university has to bow down before the ideoplex in place, and same goes with all forms of media. What we need is for the university and medias to challenge that ideoplex. That is what their duty is, to be the self-consciousness of culture. Instead they’re its servants.
