China Reportedly Bans 7 Topics in University Classes

From the Chronicle of Higher Education:

In an effort to curb Western influence, China's leaders have reportedly banned the discussion of seven subjects in university classrooms, including press freedom, universal values, and the historical mistakes of the Chinese Communist Party.

The other subjects are judicial independence, economic neoliberalism, the wealth accumulated by top government officials, and civil society.

If the U.S. imposed such a ban, what would law professors have left to talk about? Law schools could shift from a three-year to a one-year curriculum. :)
