    Your premise is ludicrous.

    Liberals - by far. For there are NO boundaries. As for being indoctrinated by religion.... you mean lead to believe that you shouldn't kill, steal, lie, rape and so on? Sounds like a pretty good neighbor to me.

    Reality has a liberal bias.  There are problems with the ivory tower but academic institutions have historically been shielded somewhat from the economic necessities of capitalism which leads to a particular mindset, which is unrealistic because of the contradictions of capitalism.

    You Trump supporters and other right-wing lunatics would do well to avoid completely any person who's been "indoctrinated by universities", including doctors, dentists, lawyers, nurses, engineers, etc.  Please, take your health, legal and Industry 4.0 problems to others as proudly and willfully ignorant as you are.  As your cult leader says, what have you got to lose?

    It's a bad thing for anyone to be "indoctrinated" into any belief system.

    But being exposed to many different ideas, as is supposed to happen in a University education, is not indoctrination.

    Back before the fall of the Berlin wall, when I went to scientific conferences in communist countries behind the iron curtain, the scientists I met who were from the Soviet Union were amazed that I had been "permitted" to read works by Karl Marx and Hitler.  They were sure that American citizens would be indoctrinated into capitalism to the exclusion of all else.

    Neither. What is worse is ignorant fools who don't look at all the facts and come to their own logical conclusion. They need an organisation to tell them what to think.

    LIBERALS BECAUSE THEY TEND TO FORCE PEOPLE TO THINK LIKE THEM.  CONSERVATIVES THAT ARE RELIGIOUS PRACTICE THEIR RELIGION AND DON'T TRY TO FORCE IT ON OTHERS
