An Unenviable Situation's Thoughtful Commentary 

Seth Edenbaum of Unenviable Situation on intellectuals and conflicted priorities:

"American intellectuals tend to speak and write as if they do not have conflicted priorities; as though admitting this would be accepting the presence of a sin. But since we all have such conflicts, the end result is that their writing and speech sound not clear and strong but thin."

As thin as the on to battle premise they stand on.
