We owe each other more.”
And what is this, but yet another call for “special” academics — the young, women, and people of color — to work for free? To sacrifice themselves, without compensation, in the service of some higher moral imperative of academia? More exploitation in the service of the myth.
Will this never change? Has this myth not done enough damage? Do people never learn? Learn that academia will never love you back? That individual effort CANNOT alter structural failure?
