I am Professor Krampus Anonymous and this is Philosophy 313: Why Everything is Stupid. Attendance is mandatory. Anyone caught browsing facebook during class will be made an object of ridicule as I expose the idiocies pervading your entire social media presence.
The objective of this course is simple: to show why, and to some extent how we have arrived at this state, that everything in our society is stupid. This includes you.
Assigned readings will typically be short. I reserve the right to censure really stupid and pointless comments from those who have not understood the assigned readings. Otherwise, class participation is encouraged.
Now stop looking at me and start doing your homework. I will be grading you. On everything.
