Harvard editorial: "Academic justice" should trump academic freedom

Oh boy, you know what that means:

According to one Harvard student, the “doctrine of academic freedom” should be replaced by a standard of “academic justice.”

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals simply in the name of ‘academic freedom’?” asked Sandra Korn, a member of the class of 2014, in an editorial in the Crimson, Harvard’s official newspaper.

Korn proposes instead that “[w]hen an academic community observes research promoting or justifying oppression, it should ensure that this research does not continue.”

Of course, you know by now that to radical "progressives," "justice" is whatever they deem it to be. In effect, no matter how factual or scientifically-based, Korn would thwart a study or class being available to students because it may fly against her supposed notions of "[academic] justice."

By the way, Korn "is a joint history of science and studies of women, gender and sexuality" major. So, this ridiculous edu-garbage is pretty much what you'd expect.

The original article is here.

In other words, truth and performance are to be secondary considerations to ideological faithfulness.

How did that work for the Soviet Union?

Sort of like FCC wanting to post "monitors" in newsrooms. Like the USSR had "political officers" stationed at similar locales.

Exactly. That FCC "monitor" proposal sounded a LOT like the USSR political officers who were stationed in newsrooms.

And "joint history of science and studies of women, gender and sexuality major?" Yeesh! Talk about the epitome of worthless degrees!
