I disagree. Actually, the average professor today is considerably more highly trained than his or her predecessor. The market has never been more competitive. There are 150 applications for most positions, and many people have doctorates and no job. Rural state colleges are getting professors trained at elite institutions on a regular basis. This is a direct result of government getting involved in student loans and the bubble starting to burst. It caused malinvestment and misappropriation.

However, the professorial culture has never been more inundated by socialistic ideas than it is now, in my opinion.

I think you are quite misguided to think the previous generation of professors were more skilled. It's the same nostalgic thinking that causes people to glorify "the good old days."
