    Yes she certainly isn't mostly mad at you for being a manipulative snob.

    Why do people hate this guy, he isn't actually going to fail anyone. 1) thats not how universities work and 2) the assumed fear makes the thought experiment valid. This is a professor doing a pretty good job of challenging good/evil worldviews.

    Now, maybe in SFP universe he will end up being some kind of supervillain, but so far he seems to be your average philosophy professor.

    He could turn it into a failing midterm and lord it over the students all semester, extra assignments, backroom begging

    Marty: The future, it's where you're going?
    Doc: That's right, twenty five years into the future. I've always dreamed on seeing the future, looking beyond my years, seeing the progress of mankind. I'll also be able to see who wins the next twenty-five world series.

    He is not "challenging" a good/evil worldview, he's just masking the fact that he's manipulating the proceedings in an "evil" manner with stupid rhetoric tricks

    .....Which would actually be a pretty decent way of doing things if he flips the script and calls out everyone but Allison, but i don't think that's how this is going to go

    I will say that the idea that this is a badly written arc is rather suspect to me

    It's entirely different from her last run-in with an uncooperative professor, which was colored by a personal tragedy that eliminated reason from the equation

    So far she's reacting in the right way and as long as there's no "Wait a minute, he has a point" turn then this is useful characterization

    That's just him being really sarcastic, turning Allison's judgment of selfish people against her. He's a dick, he'd definitely get infracted

    But people are gasping because Allison just put herself at the mercy of him sending her to the dean

    because he says shit like "the fiendish, serpent head of selfishness, revealed"

    In response to a student admitting she intentionally let someone else get thrown under the bus entirely because she didn't want to gamble her financial aid on low chance of success for someone she probably doesn't even know, lest she risk becoming a burden on her family.

    That's not even selfish, that's prioritizing her life and her family over a stranger, and only because the teacher didn't give the rest of the class time enough to understand what was happening.

    Yeah, pretty sure that was a jab at Alison's own outlook on "selfish decisions" and also a lesson in how one will likely not always have the time or the information necessary to make a completely informed decision.

    Bob The Angry Flower is still about politics:
    myenemies.gif
    Well, here we are a week, more or less, after the New York primaries! And what have we all to accept?

    On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton's triumph seems complete. I, as a Bernie booster, would love to think that maybe he could win. I may even drop a few more dozens of dollars to Bernie's efforts. But I'm currently busy accepting Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee.

    Meanwhile, on the Republican side, I watch the monkey cage with square wheels trundle and rattle along. I hoped to have orang-u-tans and gibbons and serious actual monkeys go wild nuts at the Republican convention, with the clattering expectation that Trump's hairpiece would be ripped from his head and flung across and in front of so many cameras. That is to say, I'm crossing my fingers and flesh for a contested convention.

    Will that happen? Will the Drump arrive at the convention, scraping just parely past the delegates needed for a first ballot? Or just a bit behind? Oooooh... I suppose we will simply have to see.

    Regardless of all'o that, the week comes along and insists on another Bob the Angry Flower cartoon. And as it does, and as it insists, here we find [...My Enemies]

    Man there's literally no reason to bother becoming a professor except to say things like "the fiendish, serpent head of selfishness, revealed".

    Honestly the lesson seems to mostly be that Alison's priorities are not actually the ones that are always most important. Like, it's a thought experiment in a goddamn undergrad philosophy class. Everyone is thinking of something else. "Working together for the common good" does not mean "everyone agrees with Alison about what to prioritize". If she's going to get bent out of shape about useless nonsense hypothetical situations not going her way, she's going to have trouble getting people together on anything legitimate.

    Particularly describing people as being "tricked into making the selfish choice" is silly and diminishes the fact that everyone there seems to have made a choice that's absolutely in line with their priorities.

    Like you know why I'd go with the selfish choice? Because fuck it, intro philosophy. I want to see what the lesson's supposed to be. I don't want to spend 10 minutes doing a mini community-organizing event with fellow students I don't actually care about talking to because I'm a psych student and I don't really interact with them in any other classes.

    It's only something to get bent out of shape over if you really believe that day one of intro philosophy is actually a life-or-death thunderdome event.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to Critical Resistance and Black Lives Matter.

    I'm pretty sure Prof. Asshole is intentionally trying to get a rise out of Alison, so she snaps and starts openly behaving like the 'tyrant' he claimed she was earlier.

    Honestly, I'm impressed with her level of self control. I'd totally be running my mouth at this point. Actually, I'd have specifically put down a black stone so he'd call me out & I'd have an excuse to go at him.

    The execution of this 'lesson' is so bad he's not going to effectively convey his intended message, regardless of what it is. Because there's no real risk involved here- the kids can log into their university system & switch classes before the prof can 'fail' them. All the kids are learning is that he's a manipulative asshole.
