Is it an exaggeration to use 'parasites' metaphorically of most academics? Worse than useless, they live off of others (or their parents), and do so to their detriment, infecting them with bad ideology or philosophy and killing their souls. Once one gets tenure, it's a cushy life. (And even before then, if one is has a tenure-track position as an assistant professor, life is pretty easy, even if one has to work to meet the career requirement of getting published.)
