"Poor academics now being charged by dana with new requirements - POLITICS! Sounds Sovietish to me." (S) For one, academics are hardly poor (for the most part). Their salaries are regulated by the states in which they are - and in some countries and SOME professions they even get to do consulting and start companies on the side. If you want to label responsibility as "sovietish", that's your right. personally, I would not mandate "rersponsibility" either, since that can bring up sticky questions. However, having seen the positive examples set by many academics, artists, teachers and the like, I became a believer in certain professionals contributing to civic discourse. Here in the lovely US of A, every citizen is expected to do jury duty too, which is, admnittedly a major pain, and is not undertaken willingly by all. Still, it fosters civic mindedness which is good. Or have you been in Israel so long as to join on the me-first bandwagon? So how about them boycotts as a wake up call?
