“The point the couple is trying to make is that they discovered this kind of love is a powerful and effective way to subvert patriarchy and make men less aggressive and violent, and they wanted to share that by going public. They also feel that incest between consenting adults is a matter of personal liberty and should be decriminalized,” Hathaway explained to FrontPage.
The overall goal of Hathaway and this group that he praises becomes clear in the chapter about the Iraqi student. The student says “The communists were trying to build a different economic system, so the capitalists wanted to destroy them any way they could. Warmongers have always portrayed themselves as the only alternative to the brutal beasts out there. They generate fear to stay in power.”
Elsewhere, Hathaway writes in true Marxist fashion, “The conditions are caused by capitalism’s drive to turn the middle class into a white-collar proletariat.” And the solution is predictable: “Despairing over the prospect of endless war, they [the activists] are convinced the only way to bring peace now is to bring the system down, and sabotage is one way to do that.” He isn’t critiquing policy, he’s actively working to dismember the military and overthrow Western governments in line with Marxist philosophy. And he’s an adjunct professor of American Studies at the University of Oldenburg in Germany.
In talking to FrontPage, he said there were no ultimate goals but did not deny his support for a revolution that involves replacing the U.S. government.
“The general consensus of the group, including me, is that the current system needs to be brought down before anything new can be built. It is not open to fundamental changes but only to those that maintain its power. We all agree it is important to bring it down as peacefully as possible. This will probably be a long-term process of sedition, subversion, and sabotage over several generations,” he said.
Hathaway is now writing a book titled “Wellspring: A Fable of Consciousness” that argues that world peace can be achieved through something called Transcendental Meditation. In keeping with his previous theme, females are the ones “more able than men to lead us there.” He claims that credible studies prove that gatherings of people using this form of meditation have improved the economy and health and brought down the levels of crime, violence and accidents. The root cause of war, he says, is “stress in the collective consciousness.”
This could be dismissed as the ramblings of a bizarre, paranoid man detached from reality, but it must be reiterated that he is a professor in Germany and published author with an endorsement from Noam Chomsky. His reports about this group of saboteurs may be greatly exaggerated, but this must not lead to an overlooking of the damage that placing his propaganda in American Studies courses in Germany causes.
Hathaway confirmed to FrontPage that he is still an adjunct professor at the University of Oldenburg and the University of Bonn, teaching classes called “The U.S. Presidential Election,” “Contemporary U.S. Society,” “Changing Perceptions of the USA in the Homeland and Abroad,” “The American Peace Movement: Diversities in Resistance,” “The Alternative Media,” and “Radical Women Writers.”
German parents should not tolerate having a professor like Hathaway teaching their students about the United States and they should remember that their country would not be spared the revolution he preaches.
