Academic Departmental Political Economics


Academic departments are pretty much always run like some crude communist state, where they take-take-take as much as they can from the productive faculty–whether that means funding, teaching, or administrative service–and give-give-give to the unproductive. I grinne and bear this shitte with the expectation that some day I will be one of the hapless olde fuckes and all the vibrant young fuckers will have to support me.

    I knew you weren’t a hapless old fucke, even though you like to pretend to be one on the internet.

    As a long-term adjunct, I will somehow manage not to bedaub my cheeks with hot tears of sympathy.

    Leaving aside the fact that “communist state” is an oxymoron, what the fukke is at all communistic about exploiting workers?

    Methinks the good professor has confused ‘communist state’ with ‘petty bureaucratic functionary structure dependant on a broadly distributed and ill-defined fascistic oligarchy for its’ very existance’.

    I would say the Comradde means “communist” in the sense in which those we label, and those who self-label, practiced national communism (which is pretty much not at all).

    I reserve the right to call “no true Marxist” on authoritarian Bolshevik scum.
