What is intellectual incest?

It is phenomena that mainly occurs at the universities especially in the social sciences where one climbs up in the hierarchy towards tenure if only one repeats what his or her enlighted professors dictate. As such intellectual incest is closely related to political correctness which is still pervasive in politics and in the media.

Of course originality is rewarded as well in social sciences, on the condition that one remains active within the Marxist, post-modern framework. The outcasts have only the bar and the web left. Although we prefer the bar, decent spelling requires us to be somewhat sober. Cheers.
