Academia.edu bills itself as “accelerat[ing] the world’s research” by having scholarly material available online (for a price). The group has received millions of dollars in grant money from Chinese firm Tencent Holdings. They also post massive amounts of Marxist, anti-white “academic” content.
There is an abundance of material on academia.edu dealing with leftist tripe such as social justice, climate change, white fragility, white privilege, colonialism, systemic racism, black lives matter, labor unions, class war, patriarchy, Marxism and endless similar topics that dominate academia.
Academia.edu is a perfect representation of the devolving standards of universities today. This academic mourns the current state of academia, which has been handed over to the radical left.
The only hope for academia is to decouple the institutions from government funding (in the form of guaranteed student loans and grants) immediately. Further, universities have long banished conservatives from teaching on campus. Americans must demand that universities welcome diversity of thought on campuses across the country.
To that end, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a leading role. All other states should follow his lead.
