More suppression of ideas in the university

No "American Sniper" showing at the university of Maryland - it's "islamophobic".

It's amazing that universities probably had freer expression in medieval Europe than in 21st century American universities.  They continue to evolve into places of pure approved, PC thought.  Sort of like North Korea.

I agree completely.  And what is really scary about this, is that they are EDUCATIONAL institutions.  Sigh.

It's supposedly an educational institution.  Right now, it's a one sided leftist propaganda machine that touts freedom of speech while denying that freedom to a group of people.  Silence is not always golden.

I've already given my opinion on non-diversity in our educational system.  What's your opinion?

I think a movie that portrayed the opposite view, that American soldiers are bloodthirsty murders, would also face scrutiny.

I think that a university should be a place that is vehemently honest, a place where ideas - however unpalatable - can be explored (including demolishing stupid ones) and a place where your presence is based upon your ability, and not any other factor (except refraining from burning the place down or killing people etc.)

I also think that, as our intellect is the thing that defines us, it would be and is a stupid thing to keep the doors ajar rather than wide open - as a group, humans would likely do better if we managed to set the best able people to the most challenging tasks, and therefore, certainly, I agree with measures to ensure that can happen. THis includes helping poorer people, and those who are from groups usually discriminated against, to gain access. Not at the expense of anyone else. Just to see the right people at the right position on the admissions heirarchy.

Grudgingly, and hedged about with conditions, I can see that it is possible to justify, sometimes, exclusivity in gatherings to discuss certain topics. Possibly. Maybe. Rarely. Can't think of any.

That "Welfare and Diversity officer", if they are anything like the equivalent in the U.S., is interested in (non-white) racial privilege, not equality.
