College age young people usually come out of a life experience of having their needs looked after by someone else, namely their parents/guardians & the state. It is easy to extend that childhood state of dependency into adulthood. Many think growing up means just ipso facto getting privileges while not acquiring responsibilities. Also, since they've had limited experience in being producers or in adding value to anything thru their efforts & investment, they fail to understand productivity & earning, & readily fall for the fallacy that others have income & wealth because it was "unfairly distributed" to them. It is therefore only logical they readily fall into socialist redistributionist modes of thinking.

I hate to admit it, but I came out of college, 34 yrs. ago as liberal. My schooling was in engineering, so I didn't get too brain-washed. My parents, were however, both Democrats for life, so that was what I grew up learning.

Proud to say, that after about ten years, I started to become more and more conservative. So there's always hope!
According to conventional wisdom, the older the person, the less young people are inclined to listen to him or her.

This is probably true for some of you. But I do not believe that it is true for most of you.

Most young people have tremendous respect for older people's views. I saw this firsthand in my own life. I began lecturing publicly at the age of 21, and I give you my word that young people (and certainly older people) are far more respectful of my views today than when I was their age. All things being equal, it is...
