"Thus, increased specialization has led to increased alienation between not only professors and the general public, but also between the professors themselves.  
All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.
What a waste."
