The Freefall of the Universities by James Reed
It is not just our Australian universities that are diseased with political correctness: it is a problem seen right across the West, and even Oxford University is subject to this regime: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/edition/news/christian-accuses-oxford-of-bias-g8mss9w02.
A trainee Church of England priest at Oxford University, Shahriar Ashrafkhorasani (33 years) who is near completing his Applied Theology Masters at Oxford University, has accused the University of discrimination and bias, saying that he was told he could not ask a lecturer a critical questions about Islam. The student has filed a formal complaint to the university’s proctors’ office. He claims the lecturer pointed at him in a seminar and said: “Everybody can ask a question except you.”
Seems pretty discriminatory to me.
What is novel about this case of intellectual suppression is that the student is himself of a Muslim background, so the usual race card could not be played. Nevertheless, no criticism is tolerated, not even a question.
Meanwhile, there is creeping Islamisation in British schools, involving segregation of students: http://pamelageller.com/2014/04/uk-public-schools-illegally-segregate-discriminate-non-muslim-students-restricted-comply-strict-islamic-teaching.html/, and schools in Birmingham restricting teaching to fit in with Muslim beliefs: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/10775755/State-schools-isolate-non-Muslims.html.

There are a few brave intellectuals who refuse to bow to the cult of political correctness, such as Professor Jordan Peterson of the University of Toronto, who has been critical of aspects of the gender agenda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X_Kfm_qWpN0 He sees the cultural Marxists as having invaded the campus.
However, the fate of free thinkers is seen in the recent incident where, Professor Allison Stanger suffered a neck injury at Middlebury College, after she escorted Charles Murray, co-author of The Bell Curve, off the Vermont campus. They were attacked by a frenzied mob of student protesters, who yanked at her hair, injuring her neck. As usual, the students will be rewarded by having good jobs in the corrupt system in the future. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4280516/Professor-injured-mob-protesting-conservative-speaker.html#ixzz4aQ9JHjJe.
The Enlightenment has ended and the new Dark Ages, now sweep over the West, like something from the early part of The Lord of the Rings:
