We had such a system in the Kaiser and Nazi eras. France and England are
still central states where the last word over th style of teaching
mathematics is a matter of the political establishment in principle.

From the experiences of strict regulation, eg. the destruction of the
German mathematics 1933-45 eg by trying to forbide to teach relativity,
in the postwar German Federal Republic (West) the whole complex of
culture, education and arts has been subjected only to administrational
supervision with respect to financial control and appointment of
officials by the states authorities. In nearly all apects the
universities are democratic self controlled institutions.

The system is by far the best in the world as a compromise between a
high level educational system and acadmic freedom or thought and speech.
Anybody who is trying to forbide WM to circulate his absurde view of
mathematics will be rebuffed by all courts in Germany. He can always
declare his views it as a relgion, an art or a philosophy.

To make himself a laughing stock in the mathematical community is the
right of every professor in Germany. Most mathematicians try to do the
same if they make their comments about other sciences.

As it is with the rest of the population, about 10% of all professors,
even highly appreciated specialists in their fields, are Fachidioten
with respect to all other aspects of life, politics, culture and the
other sciences. Nowhere the density of psychological aberrations is
higher than in departments of abstract branches of sciences.
