WHAT IS IT WITH AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITIES

An Australian University has declined hosting a course on Western Civilisation on the grounds of it possibly being in conflict with what the University stands for.

A recent poll across all politics suggested the decision was wrong. Is this a further step in the demoralisation of the Academy? Is there any truth in the suggestion there is a hatred of Western civilisation that has arisen in certain sections of academia and in our cultural elites? Or are the Chancellors and Vice-Chancellors correct in claiming the decision is based purely on autonomy and independence.

Come and listen to an intriguing discussion on a topic that has captured the headlines of late by
two very forthright Australian commentators.
