On the Elite and Their Devilish Quest for Popularity

Remember back in the day when it was enough for a scholar to be a scholar and make her or his mark on the world through their scholarship?  Those days have been replaced by our own wherein many scholars care more about popularity and publicity than they do scholarship and knowledge.  And it’s damaging both society and academy.

Give this very relevant essay a read.  Pay attention to it, because it applies to academics as much as it does to any other circle of elites.
