It always turns my stomach when academics take advantage of knowledge to disseminate blatantly biased propaganda. Here we have religion (of the Christian brand) and Monarchical ideology in a smooth-talking name-dropping somewhat arrogant teacher of philosophy. The other negative reviews give specific details of the same things that shocked me when I listened to this course. Fortunately I got fed up half-way, before reaching the outrageous and dogmatic last class (a pitch for God).
