Thoughts Lead To Appreciation



Street thugs and their operations – extortions, harassment, victimization, threats, excessive use of power, gang-running – are easily identifiable.  Upon entering a crowded neighbourhood, one is instantly menaced by their presence.

Extrapolate this scenario to academia.  When thugs earn the qualifications required to be part of an academic institution, their procedure remains the same and they begin to wield obscene powers over students and other staff.  I dubbed them educated hoodlums.

The academic system in some regions is over-run by educated hoodlums.  Most people – staff and students – are cool with that.  “It is the norm.”  “You have to comply.”  “That is the way it has always been.”  “Lecturers have such rights.”  “You can not change things from the outside.”  “That was the way we met things.”

Now tell me, when a sane person does become part of the system and wishes to change the way things are done even in his class to the opposition of his superiors and colleagues, can he succeed?

How does one act against what one did not oppose as a student, bearing in mind the enormous influence one can wield once one becomes an academic staff?
