Religious indoctrination 101: Oregon State University has a beautiful campus, but its administration is bonkers . . .
SJW idiocy training comes for OSU students
. . . (disclosure Maddog is an OSU alum). Sigh.
Below the break, Maddog shows everyone how to get a top ten degree for super cheap!
"This training initiative is intended to provide all students entering Oregon State University an orientation to concepts of diversity, inclusion and social justice and help empower all OSU students to contribute to an inclusive university community,” states the description of the proposed program, which Reason reports was sent in an e-mail to students earlier this week.
The proposal explains that the goals of the training would include getting students to “understand that systemic and local inequities exist and that we all play a role in creating an OSU community that resists and corrects injustice” and “recognize that each OSU student brings multiple stories and identities to their OSU experience.”
Mon Dieu! Maddox thought the Constitution Amendment I provided: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
No law respecting an establishment of religion, yet the publicly funded Oregon State University want to establish religious orientation establishing mandatory the Social Justice Religion on campus. Perhaps the University does not understand the definition of religion, "any partially or wholly integrated world view, based in whole or part on faith, or belief."
This clearly includes the Social Justice world view within the framework of religion. So perhaps a lawsuit will be needed to knock this progressive sewage out of the system.
Increasingly I am of the opinion that serious students need to find a high quality online course of study and pursue it, but at all costs avoid the colleges and universities which are hewing to the new progressive religions. Nothing good will come from these courses of study, but they will waste great amounts of time and money.
Here is one good alternative to the in person college for individuals sufficiently motivated, and driven.

Note, that while all of the colleges at the University of London are quite good, the London School of Economics and Political Science is excellent, with its degrees (including accounting, banking, business, economics, and finance among others) commonly ranked approximately 10th in the world, making it a truly world class degree.
Costs are low as well:
£84 Application fee (non-refundable)
£89/£45 Application fee for accreditation of prior learning (per course/half course).
£760 Registration fee 1.
£380 Continuing registration fee 1.
£224 Examination fee per course.
£112 Examination fee per half course
The course of study is 6 semesters of work commonly taken over three years, resulting in a degree. Exams occurs only in May/June each year, and may be re-sit (retaken).
This means the cost of study, without books, and supplies is about $3,000 per year, for a total tuition and testing cost of about $9,000. Testing is available in many places in the US, commonly in or close to large cities, and often performed at universities. Assuming books are less than $3,000 in total the total cost is about the cost of one year of instate college tuition here in the US, which seems to run about $9,400 without books, supplies, lodging, food, etcetera.
The courses require 2.5 years of study in major, and one semester of study (4 half classes, or 2 full year classes in related areas). This usually means that an economics major might take related courses in business, accounting, finance, or the like.
Notice the lack of requirements for Social Justice Religion classes, Correct Communism Thought classes, or another worthless time waster classes created by the imbeciles who run US colleges, and universities today.
I no longer advise potential matriculants to university to attend a US university in person, but instead for them to seek education elsewhere, for less cost, better quality, and no indoctrination.
Regardless of where you attend, unless your parent are wealthy, and willing to stipend you for life, always remember to chose a degree with he potential for work opportunities, and never allow your student debt to rise higher than one-half of your realistic first years wage.
