Perhaps the single most fundamental thing I’ve come to appreciate in my academic tenure is that top-down heirarchical systems (administration to faculty) generally lead to really bad results. Working with administrations really leads one to appreciate Marx’s desire to bring about the withering away of the “state”... larvalsubjects said this on February 9th, 2007 at 4:08 am 9:13 AM]
Surpassing the State or Religions are noble Nietzschean desires bordering upon adolescent romanticism. Even within a near-perfect dispensation it is difficult to get rid of hierarchy and the only welcome circumstance is to moderate our reactions towards it. [TNM]
