William Ayers' views are as radical as ever. He is a leading advocate of social justice teaching; that means getting students to believe they are victims of an unjust, oppressive, racist America, so they become targets for Obama's message. Social justice teaching really means overthrowing American traditions of individual justice and free-market economics. William Ayers' writings and lectures are widely used in public-school teacher training. The code words for the William Ayers curriculum are social justice, transformative vision, imperialism, oppression, critical pedagogy, liberation, capitalist injustices, critical race theory, queer theory, multiculturalism, and feminism. William Ayers sees his work on college campuses as carrying on his radicalism in a new sphere. He trains teachers to be revolutionaries and community organizers.
