Burgess writes in his autobiography:

I foresaw, and said so, that

  • student indiscipline
  • victimisation of the faculty, and
  • the elevation of racial rights above the demands of scholarship

were going to degrade the study of the liberal arts, kill the departments of humanities, and leave the real work in the hands of the students of computer engineering.
