Indoctrination at Portland State

The following account of a philosophy class at Portland State University was
written by a student who has asked us to keep her identity hidden because
she is fearful of possible reprisals. Apparently, this is what passes for
education in America today. -- The Editors.

The last four classes of my philosophy class included watching a documentary
called Manufacturing Consent [based on the book by Noam Chomsky], then
discussing Marx’s view point of our American system. My professor promoted David
Ray Griffin, a leftwing conspiracy theorist who wrote a book claiming that
the Bush administration had foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks, and his books on
two occasions explaining that he would offer the missing viewpoint that
might combat the mainstream view of
Americans. We then defined Marx’s philosophy by remembering our criticisms
of other philosophies and explaining why Marx’s philosophies fixes these

The video was obvious propaganda. The students even acknowledged it as such
when given our five minutes of rebuttal. The movie said fallacies like the
Neo-Conservatives (including Gingrich, Bush, Cheney, Condoleezza Rice, and
other members of Bush’s administration) were trying to take over the world
immediately following the Cold War. Apparently, since winning the war,
Neo-Conservatives decided that it was America’s chance to increase military power and
to dominate the world’s resources. This
has been continued by President Bush. The movie was accompanied by out of
context quotes from conservative politicians discussing war tactics. They
criticized America’s cover-up by these Neo-Conservatives about the Iraq War,
discussed the public's pathetic misunderstanding of the connection between
Osama Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, all while playing haunting, eerie
background music.

The kids were given about 5 minutes to discuss the movie before class
finished. (Mind you, the movie took up 2 class periods). I think 3 students spoke
up, and I was surprised. I expected them to talk about how evil the right wing
is. However, the students discussed how truth is so easily made up by the
political parties. The parties just battle each other by using propaganda. The
kids explained how frustrated they were because it is impossible to figure
out what the truth is when we are not
the ones dealing with the political issues. Any politician could make up
anything for their benefit. It comes down to which political side can make up
the better cover up. Which side can fool the people more. I was encouraged by a
student who said that it was obvious that the president would be saying such
“war monger” sounding comments because our country, in fact, is in a war!
Why was the video misquoting him so? If the movie does this how reliable is

The next class period involved defining Marxism and how his philosophy is
the best mix of all the philosophers we have studied previously in class. Not
much time for discussion was permitted, but most people felt that communism
was a silly idea. Still, it was infuriating that my professor would argue for
equal payment for everyone. The concept that everyone should be allowed to do
their dream job for awhile, then be required to switch around because
everyone needs to take on the undesired jobs
of society as well, was ridiculed in class. I believe his argument for
communism was destroyed. Yet, it was frustrating that he was standing in front of
the class playing “the devil’s advocate”. Sure! He has let us know that he
voted for Nader, and if I am not mistaken has also been to some political
function where he had dinner with him. This man is extreme.

While I hate philosophy in general, he has been a teacher who engages the
class well and keeps things somewhat interesting. He is usually organized and
can gauge the class’s stress level and knows when to assign homework, when to
be lenient, and when to crack down. Yet, his talks always had some annoying
spin to them. It is unusual that he left us with so little time to respond
to this movie. While it was the end of the semester and we were trying to fit
all the necessary info in for our
final, I felt the time crunch was planned. He didn’t want us to argue too
well with him.
