PAUL RAHE: Stalinism At The American Political Science Association. “In short, provision has now been made for a purge; the purge is to be carried out by the clique who now control the Council and who nominate their successors (who are generally elected without a contest); and, in carrying out such a purge, they can act at will. For no grounds for removal or revocation are specified.” Typical Social-Justice-Warrior tactics. Plus: “All of this is part of a larger pattern within the academy. Everything is now politicized, and it looks as if in the future the space for free and open scholarly disputation traditionally provided by colleges, universities, and scholarly associations will no longer be available.” Long term, this simply means marginalization and a loss of outside support, but they’re not bright enough to see that.
