All of the anti-"Im Tirzu" comments defend academic freedom as an absolute given. It is high time to accept that, just as freedom of speech is not absolute (shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theatre being the paradigmatic example of a limit), neither is academic freedom. I suggest that a teacher of political science may not pursue his personal political beliefs in the classrom, and neither should academic status be abused in support of those political beliefs outside the academy.
