Just heard on the radio “A University is a place for the free exchange of all ideas – when it stops allowing the exchange of all ideas, it stops becoming a University” KAREN COX
I may not have got this quote exactly right, but the sentiment is, I believe, crucial in a free democratic Society, as is freedom of the Press and Media, however much it clashes with our own security or interest. Everyone should be able to express there beliefs, political or religious, freely and without fear of being laughed at, hated or punished. Darwinian principles of survival of the fittest, and of the most adaptive behaviour, also applies to cultural memes – may the most helpful memes win!
