Because there is adequate protection for all faculty (academic freedom and the 1st amendment protections guaranteed for everyone) irrespective of faculty rank, tenure is an outdated and abused practice of academia. Tenure is an archaic description of rights granted for the protection of thought, philosophy and utterance when there were no laws to protect academic practices. That is no longer the case and the abuse of tenure has been detrimental to the needs of society.

Remember that tenure creates a lifetime employment contract between the university and the professor.
