On What Planet Campus? I have a hard time believing this.
''Among members of the older generations, the 1960s divisiveness lives on,'' said Dan Lee, a religion professor at Augustana College in Rock Island, Ill.
''But among today's students, it's just an entirely different approach, an entirely different mindset, a different degree of rationality and careful consideration of the issues. And a commendable degree of openness to different opinions.''
I've had friends cussed out and called names for merely supporting troops, even while questioning the war itself. That is not openness, that is not rationality. It's one of the (unfortunately less severe) symptoms of the close-mindedness that students have today. When you come to college, it is assumed that you are a liberal. Fortunately, many are too apathetic to get too out of hand because of the assumption that everyone thinks a certain way. It also means that the only ones heard are the assholes that treated my friend that way. I know it isn't the end of the world or anything like that, but it sure as hell isn't a "commendable degree of openness." (Link via Phillip Coons.)
