Chinese university cuts ’freedom of thought’ from charter

Fudan University, one of China’s top universities, dropped the phrase ’freedom of thought’ from its charter and included a pledge to follow the Communist Party. The changes have sparked heated debate. Within hours, the Fudan amendments were trending on social media. A video circulating on Twitter showed students singing their college anthem, which includes the phrase ’freedom of thought’.

Soo nothing really has changed. A country that doesn’t have free speech as a law takes away free speech. And before you say it says free thought what do you think speech is.

Nobody should be surprised by this. Totalitarianism is a truly horrific ideology that would make even some tyrants throughout history squirm. (Note that authoritarianism and totalitarianism are not the same thing; the latter is the most extreme and perverted form of the former).

You dont build a mighty empire by encouraging "freedom of thought" or the "consent of the governed!" What would honorable Chairman Mao say, you counter-revolutionary ne'er-do-wells?! 🇨🇳🇨🇳🇨🇳

Wake up The Democrats and Wall Street are not working for you, they are working for the Chinese Communist Party. Democrats used the intelligence services to manufacture fake evidence to perpetrate a coup d'etat to overthrow the President of the United States of America.
