When Liberal Professors start getting Carte Blanche to espouse their rabid ideologies, the people who really suffer are the children that are being denied a proper education. At Wisconsin-Madison Univesity, Erik Olin-Wright is paid $170,000 a year to brainwash kids into believing that Capitalism is evil.
He says that Capitalism causes misery and oppression, but he is very wrong. Capitalism is responsible for taking more people out of poverty than any other thing in existence. It is, in fact, the reason that even America’s poorest workers are better off than the richest workers in most other countries.
The Professor is confusing Capitalism with Corporatism. Is this because he is an idiot? Or is it more likely that as Corporatism is at the root of Globalism, then he is a shill for the Globalists? Either way, this is the last person you want teaching your children.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The University of Wisconsin-Madison offers a sociology course informing students that capitalism creates “a world of great misery, inequality and oppression” that “is irrational in ways that hurt nearly everyone.”
Erik Olin Wright, the well-heeled professor who teaches the graduate-level course, rakes a sweet annual salary of $170,000 per year.
The MacIver Institute, a free-market think tank, obtained the syllabus for Wright’s course by way of a public records request. The course is entitled: “Class, State, and Ideology: An Introduction to Social Science in the Marxist Tradition.”
The affluent professor’s course syllabus, which goes on — and on — for almost 80 pages, declares that capitalism “generates harms” and “generates injustices” which “can be broadly grouped under three rubrics: exploitation, domination and irrationality.”
