The slide starts here...

Click on the title for the link. It has to do with Ahmadinej(ih)ad encouraging the expulsion of what he considers "secular professors."

You saw this same sort of thing in China as the Communists were taking over. Academicians were removed from their positions--supposedly to teach them to "use their backs" for the good of the State, but in reality, it kept those with the responsibility to investigate matters from meddling with the agenda of the invading ideology.

I don't remember if the same thing happened in Germany on the academic level, but I do know that pastors bold enough to speak out against the NSDAP were removed. They also represented a sector of society that acts as a sort of watchman against cultural or social upheavals.

Remove these watchmen, and you're setting up a society for bondage of one sort or another.
