The older faculty members are, the likelier they are to resist the neoliberal measures of our administrators. The younger they are, the more wide-eyed enthusiasm they have for these measures. I probed, and it looks like they aren’t necessarily guided by any particular love for budget cuts, firings, and worsened working conditions. Rather, it’s the need to believe that authority is always right that inspires them. I’m hoping it’s age-related and not generational.
