Academics in the humanities realising en masse that they would make better money, get mad RTz and followers — and pocket money liberal crowdfunding — by peddling cultural studies research to Buzzfeed. Such is the nonsensical value of a philosophy doctorate: job options include tenured professor or listicle generator.  In a shipwrecked system, any audience attention seems like a personal floatation device.

Just make sure it says “Dr” on your buoyancy compensator.
