Inside Higher Ed reported this week on a US survey showing that “Among full-time faculty members at four-year colleges and universities, the percentage identifying as ‘far left’ or liberal has increased notably in the last three years . . .” This is not comforting news, but at least we know that the further the political pendulum in academia continues its decades-long swing to left, the harder and faster will be its return to the right–at which point, with any luck, a new balance will be established.
