Berkeley’s ‘Ethics in the Age of Trump’ course asks if Trump’s presidency is ‘threat to democracy’
The University of California, Berkeley offered a new course during the spring 2019 semester called “Ethics in the Age of Trump.”
Public policy professor David Kirp, who taught the course, said that the class was not about “Trump-bashing,” but instead explored the “ethical implications of Trump-ism” by “discussing topics like lying, self-enrichment and the pros and cons of resignation and whistleblowing,” according to a piece the professor wrote for The Washington Post.
“I fantasized that I’d start by announcing, dead pan, that this was a very short course because the topic was a nonstarter — there was no ethics in the Trump world — and that everyone who left a red envelope filled with cash on the podium would receive an A,” stated Kirp, regarding the first day of class. “Then I would walk out of the room, returning a minute or two later to bedlam. ‘Just kidding,’ I’d say, and we would settle down to business.”
Kirp’s course seeks to explore various discussion questions, including “How had the president’s words and deeds affected the way that issues like racism were understood?” “What were the impact of Trump’s assaults on the press?” and “whether Donald Trump’s presidency could represent a threat to democracy itself.”
“Mostly, the students dismissed the threat-to-democracy argument, believing that Trump, despite his authoritarian tendencies and disrespect for the Constitution, lacked the brainpower to pull off that transformation,” Kirp said about the last example question.
