This dark environment at Australian Universities is the consequence of 
the ongoing and deepening commodification of higher education, a process 
both major parties have been deeply involved in. When your Grundnorm is 
profit, ideas which challenge that, however expressed, are a threat to 
the very essence of the machine that is now the University sector. That 
machine is destroying the University as the seeming bastion of 
difference and the dissemination of often currently unconventional and 
unpopular ideas. To defend academic freedom we must defend Martin Hirst.
