I'm in love with this article.
"The fake intellectual invites you to conspire in his own self-deception,
to join in creating a fantasy world."
"He is the teacher of genius, you
the brilliant pupil. Faking is a social activity in which people act
together to draw a veil over unwanted realities and encourage each other
in the exercise of their illusory powers. The arrival of fake thought
and fake scholarship in our universities should not therefore be
attributed to any explicit desire to deceive. It has come about through
the complicit opening of territory to the propagation of nonsense.
Nonsense of this kind is a bid to be accepted."
This is a fantastic description of the pathetic left and its faux-intellectual gurus in the media, academy and in the arts.
