Charles Koch walks into a Marxist china-shop

Charles Koch has not been enlightened by the decorum of marxist-lead universities where academic freedom succumbs to the stifling marxist framework: good for him.

"Koch’s donations have fueled the expansion of a branch of economic research that aligns closely with his personal beliefs of how markets work best: with strong personal freedom and limited government intervention.

"They have seeded research centers, professors and graduate students devoted to the study of free enterprise, who often provide the intellectual foundation for legislation seeking to reduce regulations and taxes.

"Long dwarfed by his prodigious support for conservative candidates, Koch’s academic giving has now landed him at the center of a white-hot debate over freedom and speech on campus."--Jim Tankersley, The Washington Post
