“the Republican will fulfill a dream of his”
The Senator won’t be teaching politics. In fact, the class sounds rather… interesting.
Red Alert Politics reports:
Rand Paul will teach a class at GWU — and it’s not a politics course
Professor Rand Paul will teach a class next fall at George Washington University.
That is not a proofreading error.
A representative for GW’s Columbian College of Arts and Sciences tells Red Alert the Kentucky senator will teach a course titled “Dystopian Visions” during the Fall 2017 semester.
In the midst of a presidency that’s been compared to this genre, the Republican will fulfill a dream of his from at least almost four years ago.
“I’ve talked about it, but unfortunately I keep developing other projects that get in the way. I would like to do it someday,” the former presidential candidate said in a 2013 interview with VICE in response to rumors he wants to teach a class on novels related to plots that are unpleasant or miserable. “I think dystopian novels are a discussion of politics, and sort of what happens if you let a government accumulate too much power.”
Students are excited to take this bi-weekly 8 AM class. “I’m taking his class because I really admire him as a Senator, and I find dystopian novels very interesting philosophically,” a freshman told Red Alert. “To that end, I think politics will be discussed to the extent they apply to the ideas we are discussing.”
