"How you treat one person is how you treat the whole universe, because everything is One."
Robert Adams (via elige)
"Radical academics may point to the hegemony of the institution, and its dominant intellectuals, without challenging their own power and investment in these structures. Their ‘outsider’ status mystifies the power and privileges of progressive activist scholars. Once truly outside the academy, academic-bound radicals may be unmasked as ‘insiders’ aligned with institutional power. Stable identity constructs as ‘transformative’ or ‘activist’ scholars crumble- except for those who can reconstitute themselves as practitioners outside the academic arena. Those who can do so are no longer merely ‘outsiders’ belonging to or within the academy. In the shell game that is academe, they are able to break a losing streak in a rigged game by locating the mark: the mark only materializes outside."
