Law and Academic Freedom (podcast discussion of "Law and Liberty" Chapter Eleven)

The modern doctrine of academic freedom is a totalitarian doctrine which is hostile to real academic freedom. Academic freedom means, if taken literally, freedom of the academy, that is, freedom of the school. It means, or should mean, that anyone has the freedom to establish a school to propagate his ideas and to maintain that school without interference, as long as it does not violate the criminal and moral laws of society. This is permitted for all but Christianity.
