Libertarian Senator Rand Paul is to teach a course in dystopian literature this fall at The George Washington University in DC, triggering several lefty college professors into tantrums.
The GW Hatchet broke the news, noting that Paul will lead the class on novels and works by authors such as Ayn Rand. Paul will fulfill the role, leading 33 students, while acting as a sitting U.S. senator.
Paul has previously spoken of his desire to take on such course, telling Vice in 2013 "I think dystopian novels are a discussion of politics, and sort of what happens if you let a government accumulate too much power."
"New presidents or kings think that they're too good and smart to abuse their power," Paul said at the time, adding "It's like when Madison said, If government were comprised of angels, we wouldn't have to worry about how much power to give the government."
