blasphemy

En réalité, c’était toujours à cause du problème communiste qu’il y avait de l’opposition contre Camus. C’était toujours et surtout quelque chose de politique, une sorte de malentendu. Camus avait dénoncé le goulag et les procès de Staline. Aujourd’hui, nous pouvons dire qu’il avait raison. Mais à l’époque, dire qu’il y avait des camps de concentration en URSS était blasphématoire, vraiment très grave.

Apparently Spivak, during her time as a visiting prof at Princeton, did things along the lines of calling grad students in the middle of the night to have them come over and change her printer cartridge. This is hearsay from a Princeton grad student, of course. But he seemed lucid and was quite clear about his conviction that Spivak is an insane person.
