Beatty explains that their society values superficial peruits over thinking and pheosophy. 

With school turning out more runners, jumpers, racers, tinkerers, grabbers, snatchers, fliers, and swimmers instead of examiners, critics, knower and imaginative creators, the word 'intellectual,' of course, became the swear word it deserved to be.
