David Myers Quote
A university is a place for the free interchange of ideas. It is not only a traditional privilege of university people to dissect, examine and criticise the basis of current practices; it is an obligation to do so, provided only that their criticism is supported by and scholarly reasoning. This implies a freedom which must be jealously guarded and never abused. We live in a democratic community in which there is no place for the suppression of reasoned criticism. Universities have no monopoly of the right to criticise; nevertheless, they are centres of concentration of intellectual ideas, and it is not surprising that many decisions at government level have been suggested or stimulated through an expression of an academic viewpoint.
