There’s an awful cost to getting a PhD that no one talks about

Old, but a good one about the mental problems of graduate students. My personal awakening started from this and a handful of other articles.

Graduate School Can Have Terrible Effects on People’s Mental HealthPh.D. candidates suffer from anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation at astonishingly high rates.

Again, three years past the previous article in “Quartz” and nothing has changed. Nothing ever changes in the rotten world of academia.

Stop exploitation of foreign postdocs in the United States

I like this one. They are plainly admitting that academia is nothing but a sweatshop with abysmal working conditions. This sweatshop would collapse without continuous influx of cheap foreign labor. Fucking sweatshop!

Burn it Down: Emails of Adviser & Professor Abuse Expose Systemic Crisis in Academia
This is the best one! Simply loving it! It was written by a person who was conned by the Academia, thrown away and now being sued for exposing them for the fraud they are. A masterpiece of humiliation, suffering, and anger.
