FOLLOW THE SINISTER CHINESE/AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT-MEDIATED MONEY TRAIL: new ideas come from academia and/or whoever funds the academy
Any university accepting money from the Chinese government can expect to be leaned on to become a mouthpiece for pro-Chinese political propaganda.
Is that a worry?
Australian government schools and “independent” schools accepting Australian government money find themselves pressured into teaching secular, utilitarian, dumbed-down, emotivism.
That’s a big worry.
With politicians paying the piper, parents of government-funded schools must cop the meaninglessly perverse tune.
Such schools have relinquished any option of remaining values-based.
Are the pro-death (death by abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide etc.) and anti-family (same-sex marriage and fluid-gender-cult-preaching) governments of Australia any better values-wise than the government of China?
For would-be values-valuing institutions, money from either of those sources is money to not even think about touching with a barge-pole.
