Screwtape and Educators

Baudelaire, or all people, wrote a short poem which included this observation:

...The devil, seemingly a propos of nothing, confides to the human that he always hovers, albeit invisibly, over academic gatherings. That, from the diabolic perspective, is the ideal environment. In that setting it is so easy to inspire the consciences, the writings, and the very vocabulary of the pedagogues....

I always suspected that the educrat argot was....... ahhh.... fiendish.
