Still Enjoy Freedom Of Speech
Still Enjoy Freedom Of Speech.
This, however, may have given you a completely false idea of academic freedom in Melbourne University. We do, in fact, enjoy freedom of speech, to quite a remarkable extent. There is a Labour Club which is frankly Communistic, and a strong Anti-War Council, which is certainly self-communistic, the remainder being at least strongly anti-capitalist.
There is not the least restriction placed upon the utterances of members of these societies, either in their own meetings or in public.
Moreover, the Labour Club publishes a magazine, "Proletariat," which is completely communistic, and is eagerly read by a much wider circle than mere members of the Communist Party.
