You can't generalize the intelligence of college students on only one issue.
True, but this is hardly the only example of the thrall-like relationship today's college students have to politically correct dogma.
What we should be seeing in our college students are challenging and contraversial notions. They are the ones we should be able to count upon to upend conventional thinking
Those of us who look to the late 60's and early 70's as a time when American college students actually challenged conventional (and perhaps enslaved) thought can only wince at the manner in which today's students follow the tract so obviously laid out for them.
The professors in the 60's and 70's were, in the main, the bad guys of conventional thought, but now they are not?
The true, present sadness of today is that our most promising minds are not challenging the conventional thought of Old Farts who consider themselves all that.
Go weird, go strange, go to the truth, but don't, you young minds, go where the cemented current versions of you demand.
