A [Quora post] about what it’s like to be falsely imprisoned also strangely captures what it’s like to be at a university that no longer cares about being a university and, it seems, actively undermines faculty:
> The first few months of prison life are about adaptation. It’s a different society, a subculture of power — physical, emotional, and spiritual. There are simple rules. Obey and internalize those rules and you’ll get by.
> As the years pile up, feigned apathy becomes your outward mask. But on the inside, anger and bitterness consume you. Revenge occupies your so-called free moments. At other odd times, you fantasize about living a normal life…or escaping to a tropical paradise…or dying in prison.
