    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Hypocrisy doesn't apply since i'm not that guy.

    Unsubstantiated anti-liberal prejudice undermines your own position.

    I actually dont care about any of the mentiomed plagarism. I was simply showing your double standard.
    Um, wasn't a double standard. Those were two completely different situations. People who give speeches reuse phrases all the time. People who write in academics are expected to properly source all copied material. I understand that there are a lot of ignorant people who have no idea how academia operates, but i am trying to explain to you that it's a different ballgame.

In some instances, Crowley footnoted her source but did not identify with quotation marks the text she was copying directly."
    The key here is "in some instances", but in many instances she did not, which means that she stole the credit for what other people wrote.

    Right, I get it, I've written a lot of academic papers and what she did is actually a pretty serious academic problem. Everyone knows the rules, and she almost surely intentionally didn't abide by them or at a minimum didn't give a damn about them, and so was incredibly lazy and sloppy AT BEST.

    The person I responded to was wondering how the school allowed a dissertation to pass with NO footnotes or bibliography, and I just pointed out that she had both.

    Frankly without a software program, that kind of plagiarism is almost impossible to detect, so I don't blame the school for not catching it.

    Many law school professors, if not most. Almost all of them graduated in the top ten per cent of their classes, but many of them do not become practicing lawyers.
