... Northwest probably deems anyone seeking back pay in P.R. China as disharmous, and should be "re-educated".  Then again, like most academics around the world, tenure does leave university professors with a very warped view of the working environments.

... a song from a band in Brazil (a fellow BRIC member) - may be more appropreiate!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHGlGWEKkhI

Sepultura - Refuse/Resist

Chaos a.d.
Tanks on the streets
Confronting police
Bleeding the plebs
Raging crowd
Burning cars
Bloodshed stars
Wholl be alive? !

Chaos a.d.
Army in siege
Total alarm
Im sick of this
Inside the state
War is created
No mans land
Whats this ----? !

Refuse/resist
Refuse

Chaos a.d.
Disorder unleashed
Starting to burn
Starting to lynch
Silence means death
Stand on your feet
Inner fear
Your worst enemy

Refuse/resist
Refuse/resist

... for younger generation of Chinese, when dealing with princelings and academics alike:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ONZ9bL2WGBE

Pantera - Walk

Cant you see Im easily bothered by persistence
One step from lashing out at you...
You want in to get under my skin
And call yourself a friend
Ive got more friends like you
What do I do?

(pre) is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where Ive been
Belong
You cant be something youre not
Be yourself, by yourself
Stay away from me
A lesson learned in life
Known from the dawn of time

(chorus) respect, walk

Run your mouth when Im not around
Its easy to achieve
You cry to weak friends that sympathize
Can you hear the violins playing you song?
Those same friends tell me your every word

(pre)

(chorus)

Are you talking to me?
No way punk

... nothing better in the morning than some Metallica to get the blood pumping:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjUsDDxNRxU

Dont Trend on Me - Metallica

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

Dont tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that youll hear evermore...

Dont tread on me

Love it or live it, she with the deadly bite
Quick is the blue tongue, forked as lighting strike
Shining with brightness, always on surveillance
The eyes, they never close, emblem of vigilance

Dont tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that youll hear evermore...

Dont tread on me

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling on her tail

So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that youll hear evermore...

Dont tread on me

... Let there be Rock!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=98I85ceICRM

AC/DC - Let there be rock

In the beginning
Back in nineteen fifty-five
Man didnt know about a rock n roll show
And all that jive
The white man had the smoltz
The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But tchaikovsky had the news
He said -

Let there be light, and there was light
Let there be sound, and there was sound
Let there be drums, and there was drums
Let there be guitar, and there was guitar
Let there be rock

And it came to pass
That rock n roll was born
All across the land every rockin band
Was blowing up a storm
The guitarman got famous
The businessman got rich
And in every bar there was a super star
With a seven year itch
There were fifteen million fingers
Learning how to play
And you could hear the fingers picking
And this is what they had to say

Let there be light
Sound
Drums
Guitar
Let there be rock

One night in a club called "the shaking hand"
There was a ninety-two decibel rocking band
The music was good and the music was loud
And the singer turned and he said to the crowd -

Let there be rock
