In effect they are being forced to take the equivalent of a religious course in the faith and dogma of the dominant religion. Mankiw should be required to offer his course through the religious studies department.

and like many religions what is demanded is the de-souling, the uncoupling of the will from the desire for the greatest good for the greatest number.

it's anti-religion, seen that way. an amputation of natural empathy, subbed with a prosthesis of pure self-interest.

only committed assholes need apply...
