See my comment:
The U.S. dual public and private university systems must be contextualized and located within the US nation-state and its central ideological precept of "free" market fundamentalism, which thrives on inequality and inequity.
Let’s ask the tough questions and help shape the answers to those very questions in the public sphere, not only in safe classrooms behind ivied walls which replicate the power structure and worldview of the predatory, expansionist, inequitable U.S. nation-state.
