It’s quite mind-boggling to read this Daily Beast article whining about the Koch brothers demanding universities comply with certain conditions of theirs when they take their donation money. The solution, if you’re opposed to the brothers’ political philosophy, is to not accept their money.

Anyways, try reading David Levanthal’s article:

Koch Foundation to College: We’ll Give You Millions—if You Teach Our Libertarian Claptrap

In 2007, when the Charles Koch Foundation considered giving millions of dollars to Florida State University’s economics department, the offer came with strings attached.

First, the curriculum it funded must align with the libertarian, deregulatory economic philosophy of Charles Koch, the billionaire industrialist and Republican political bankroller.

Second, the Charles Koch Foundation would at least partially control which faculty members Florida State University hired.

And third, Bruce Benson, a prominent libertarian economic theorist and Florida State University economics department chairman, must stay on another three years as department chairman—even though he told his wife he’d step down in 2009 after a single three-year term.
