Academia is an indoctrination system which maintains social control through higher education. This system is maintained by mass egotism and a persistent effort to assert a false sense of intellectual and authoritative superiority over others. This book is divided into three major areas in which I experienced and witnessed Corruption in Academia: (1) Graduate School (2) Journals (3) Feedback. As long as you stay in your place according to the established hierarchy, then you will not only fit in to this indoctrination system, but you will become an important part of it that keeps it going. However, if you do not fit in to your respective category, then the academics who have already bought into this corrupt system will take any action necessary to ensure that you are promptly removed from it-and that's exactly what happened to me.
