INDOCTRINATION? What The Occupiers Believe, And Why They Believe It. “If the Occupiers are in any sense Marxist, then, they have absorbed their Marxism by some mysterious process of cultural osmosis, because it is impossible to imagine any of those nitwits taking time to work their way through ‘Imperialism’ or ‘What Is to Be Done?’ . . . To explain why the Bolshevik experiment failed so spectacularly would require that students be taught the errors of socialism, which would necessarily require an explanation of the superiority of the market economy to the socialist planned economy. And the left-wing orientation of today’s academic establishment — ‘Down With Capitalist Education!’ to quote a sign in a protest today by Cal State university faculty — pretty much prohibits any such explanation.”
