Marxist Professor Rakes In $170K Per Year Teaching About The Inequality & Oppression Of Capitalism

Typical Marxist hypocrite… Sociology Professor Erik Wright is one slick scammer. He’s making himself wealthy all while promoting Marxism by criticizing capitalism.

Capitalism creates wealth, prosperity, and freedom. Socialism on the other hand, as demonstrated in Venezuela creates misery, inequality, and oppression, all while the leaders become very rich and everyone else lives in poverty. 

Amazing isn’t it? The ones who benefit the most from capitalism always decry its inequalities.

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.”

Marxism, on the other hand, is an “emancipatory social science” that seeks to “fulfill the goal of generating critical social scientific knowledge relevant to the task of challenging systems of oppression.”

“Human emancipation” is the goal of Marxism, the fat-cat professor explains.

The tenured, capitalism-hating professor’s annual salary of $170,000 is $116,111 greater than the household income of a typical Wisconsin family and in the top 2 percent of all Americans.

While an average middle-class family in Wisconsin survives on $4,491 per month (before taxes), the Marxist professor enjoys a cushy monthly income of $14,166. More

Why do these cockroaches always end up as Professors or Politicians? He’s never worked an honest day his life and then has the nerve to tell us how we should live while raking in the big dough. Is he the poster child for what is wrong with our higher education system?
