Repressive Quotations

Work while you work, play while you play - this is a basic rule of repressive self-discipline.
Theodor Adorno

The very concept of an Iranian university is an oxymoron. There are no free and open places of learning in that repressive theocracy. Dissenters are not given tenure; they are murdered, after first being tortured. Blasphemy, which is broadly defined, is punished. Gays are not only excluded from Iranian universities, but are imprisoned and killed.
Alan Dershowitz

Peter Singer
