Don’t think?

Normally we would encourage our students to learn to think for themselves, and their teachers and professors to guide them in the process.  The headmasters, university presidents, and officials in charge of education are supposed to create an environment conducive to learning and thinking. 

Lately, however, we have the minister of education, an ex-minister of education, an ex-president of the Chinese University, an ex-headmaster of a leftist secondary school, and numerous such people jumping up to tell the students, their teachers and their parents to stop thinking for themselves, to just toe the line of the government on the election of the chief executive.  

This is a great opportunity for the students to learn about public affairs that affect  the community.  And you are telling them you will do the thinking for them.  No, you are saying that the Communist Party will do the thinking for everyone.  Shame  on you.
