I wish everybody involved would spend time thinking hard about the following problem: there are certain disciplines in universities which are (a) rife with people who largely consider themselves political activists rather than scholars, and (b) also widely recognized as being rather less-than-optimally rigorous.
IMO this is a significant problem in universities. This is, of course, not some kind of call for interference with academic freedom. One can be whole-heartedly committed to academic freedom and still recognize the problem as a problem.
