The entire anarchist scene has been inundated with philosophers, social critics, intellectuals, literary critics, etc., from academia for the past ten or fifteen years. From gender to ecology, we are slowly moving away from an anarchic critique and understanding of the world we inhabit, and being domesticated into looking through the lens of an elite class of people who love to juggle ideas and have a great vocabulary., but like Marx and the Marxists, are a mile wide but an inch deep.

90% of the ‘humour’ here (anarchist news) is ironic references to academic personalities.

But I don’t believe that Ramon Elani’s outlook or place in the social order fits this creeping invasion. It’s intelligent but not intellectual.
