If the form-filling that plagues academia is pointless, why do academics comply with it?

"Yet it does not account for the moralising and punitive manner in which bureaucratic demands are formulated. They are derived from private sector managerialism, yet while they have been largely flushed out of business itself, they are applied to academia in a correctional spirit, as if it is not behaving in a sufficiently businesslike manner."

I have watched Citizenfour http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4044364/
Few days ago. Its brilliant. I made me also install encription software to my phone. Can everyone please install "Signal" on their IPhones and "Textsecure" on your Android? It's free... https://whispersystems.org Seriously I am not really keen on getting non encripted sms and I'd prefer to talk via encripted chanells as well. For it to work both parties need to have this installed.

I listened to the critical discussion/debate about "Islam and Democracy" on the BBC World Service Radio Station in UK on 20 January 2015. The guest speakers were amazing to listen to! Well worth tracking down this radio talk to listen too.

"Democracy to be examined and explored across the BBC on Democracy Day" this is the official website with the list of live events: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/latestnews/2015/democracy-day

Thanks Stephen- cant find any links to the actual shows on the link you sent though, or are the shows not recorded and uploaded?

Sorry for the confusion, that link only has brief descriptions of the radio shows. I now just did a search for it and found the full talk uploaded on youtube, Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B96CxlYg1UI
I actually only came across the talk on radio in the last half, so now I can listen to the first half :)

I just found another talk on the "Does Democracy Work?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuzSTnEyE8w
