I think many of the yung’uns will get it. Most of the ones I know do, at leastm ost of them say, “too many people think the world and society owes them everything.” As to things like same sex marriage, well, perhaps not as strong, but if they figure things out where we are all entitled to be left alone as long as we don’t harm others and we keep our stuff we work for, I would consider that a win.
You a lot more hopeful than I. When I deal with the Thirty and Unders, not only am I struck by their total and complete ambivalence on any issue of real substance, but by the gaping holes in their knowledge base.
I am the product of a far-from-wealthy public school district and a fair to middlin’ public university. And a lot of these kids have expensive private school degrees. And I am continually blown away by how I appear to be WAAAAAAYYYYY better educated than any of them.
