Words totally fail me for what is going on at Massey University and it is not alone in the world of universities for this type of behaviour.
In my time at VUW in the “terrible” 1960s student organisations simply booked rooms for their speakers in the Student Union Building. It did not matter at all whether they were communists, business people, politicians or anarchists. If you didn’t want to hear them you didn’t go.
Anyone today who cannot live with “unacceptable ideas” being promoted on campus should not be at a university.
The evidence of the real world shows that many young people don’t need to go to university at all, to have a meaningful life and work. Some are better off at ITPs or simply going straight to work or starting their own businesses. When you see lunacy of the type going on at Massey, one realises that its time for a reassessment of tertiary education because too many institutions are losing the plot.
