Why is it that people from all over the state and country can see what is happening at this university and many of our colleagues seem unable to? Why is there no mass resistance to this train wreck of an administration and Board of Trustees? Do we like be treated with disrespect? Are we unconcerned that admin foolishness is putting the future of the university at risk with plummeting enrollment and financial aid disasters? Do we enjoy sitting on committees and spending hours of work only for our work to go unappreciated? Do we work better under the chaotic conditions created by a complete absence of admin knowledge concerning how a university works and why? Do we enjoy the stress and frustration? Is it only me and the 7 other disgruntled 'white, communist atheist professors' who experience the disappointment and frustration caused by Wayne and posse?
MLKing said "history will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition is not the strident clamor of bad people, but the appalling silence of good people". Their silence screams volumes --they are dead inside (& probably "silent" racists vs.vocal racists like Watson). Maya Angelou says of all virtues, courage is most important because it is necessary for all other virtues. Courage is ability to speak up about injustice in spite of fears. Those who see injustices committed and say nothing are part and parcel of wrongdoing.
