Critiquing institutionalized academia as a bureaucratic apparatus is a completely different thing than refusing to engage with the actual *content* of certain bodies of ideas simply because they were formulated in an academic setting."

Straw-manning, I see... But engaging with this actual content is exactly what the critique above has been doing, just as it does a good job exposing the much-overlooked relationships between Deleuze's philosophy and what we call neoliberal politics, their cybernetic management and its violent, totalitarian diffusion of capital.

If it is not as strictly enclosed within the incorporeal realm of ideas as you would "like", separating the theory from its political context of production and reproduction, then that's another issue, but your own.
