“Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.” ― George Orwell
If you actually do research and even go further to publish your findings in peer-review biomedical journals, the problem is that the very same institution where you studied then makes every effort to suppress your ideas because are a clear threat to vested interests.
Perhaps a “highly qualified researcher” according to Ph.D programs in Colombia is a euphemism:
It is whether a ghost in the machine writing a grant proposal or spending hours in the lab cooking recipes with chemical or biological ingredients.
Perhaps it is probably the same outside Colombia: it is a globalized pale blue dot anyway.
“Academic freedom — crucial to a thriving democracy. The 1946 context makes clear what is at stake: the university, built on academic freedom, is an institution that seeks to realise the freedoms that will give an emergent democratic society its various identities, arguments and openness to future possibilities. Such openness of spirit had been precluded while the university sector was the instrument of an ideologically determined political programme. Nazism permitted only those academic activities that were consistent with its aims. All else was illegitimate. For Jaspers, as for Arendt, academic freedom is more than merely academic.”
