But “Winston” thinks we’re all incestuous Marxists, apparently because I use the word “collective” to describe the Wordherders and because we comment on each other’s blogs. I would respectfully suggest that inattention to detail and nuance is more likely to sink one’s chances on the job market than academic prejudice against conservatives.
By the way, I use the word “collective” in the sense of “a collective body or whole” as in this example from 1655: “A Jewell (sometimes taken for a single precious stone) is properly a collective of many” (taken from online OED).
