    Three top Chinese universities have vowed to tighten "ideological" control over students and teachers, as a wider clampdown on free expression in the country intensifies.

    The comments came from the Communist Party committees of Peking University, Shanghai's Fudan University, and Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou, which each wrote a statement in the Communist Party theoretical journal Qiushi.

    The statement from Peking University -- China's top academic institution -- condemned those with "ulterior motives" who target the ruling party.

    "In recent years, some people go on the Internet and with ulterior motives add fuel to the fire... ultimately targeting the Chinese Communist Party and the socialist system," it said.

    Yeah, we can't have people thinking on their own.

    Are these government officials? Some sort of political semi-official shadow-management committee? A loud political group trying to sway the actions of the universities? Is this limited to just these three universities? Only temporarily limited to just those three? The article is a bit vague on some of these points, and doesn't speak to others.

    China is a communist country. I'm surprised they allow any kind of free expression.
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    I think China figured out in the 60s and 70s that Stalin-Mao style total control and repression don't work, on multiple levels. So they have been trying to find a balance between full freedom and total control that will result in economic growth and domestic peace.

    The iron fist is wearing a padded glove ... for now ... most of the time ... .
