Wheat-dogg,

Why am I not surprised by this at all?

Yet the religious right here in the US complains about lack of academic freedom when they can’t force creationism or climate change denial into our science classes. This on the other hand is a real example of not having academic freedom.

Lax environmental laws, indentured servitude as national labor policy, university professors have to do what they’re told, the military runs the country, with the help of very heavy-handed police - add China to the list of Republican Party utopias!

The religious right, of course, are only using the term ‘academic freedom’ because it sounds nice, and allegedly aids their ‘we’re victims’ campaign. The legislation they support now, and have for years, puts control of what is studied at university in the hands of politicians.

Academic freedom to our Religious Right means the freedom to teach their religion as fact in public schools. Academic freedom really means the free ability to discuss allaspects of a subject free of interference from government or administration, subject to law.

There are no laws in China barring profs from critically analyzing Chinese history and politics. These measures are a power play by the sitting administration.
