"Education", in and of itself, is not sufficient. Funding new teachers, schools and books is only a sliver of a solution. We have all of that, here in America, and look at the dismal results. The teachers, school, and books are only the tools of education. What is equally important, if not more so, is what is being taught. If what the children are learning is lies and propoganda, then that "education" is not only worthless... it is potentially dangerous.

Why is anyone surprised? NBC has been run by loons for years. Pompous, arrogant, narcissistic loons.
Count on it.
I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that if this proffesor had the opportunity, to drag Christ's body down off the cross and stomp on it, he would do so. Without hesitation.
"...demonstrate the contempt many public institutions hold for people of faith." Not quite true. The contempt many public institutions have towards people of faith is directed primarily towards Jews and Christians. I can pretty much guarantee that this same public institution would be apoplectic if one were to suggest we stomp on Mohammad.

While I agree with Stossel's core argument, he misses something here. That "rising generation of young people" do not want government to stay out of the economy. Yes they want gay marrige and legalized pot. But they also want cheap (if not free) tuition, socialized medicine, open borders, government control of business, etc. Just ask one.

Maybe Rove Has a Point

"Surely, there are charismatic candidates available to articulate enticing arguments in defense of limited government. Surely, there are limited-government types who can successfully implement fiscal conservative reforms and remain popular." Harsanyi makes one fatal assumption here. And that is that Carl Rove would see any "limited government", "fiscal conservative" as "electable". Remember that Rove is of the "compassionate conservative" camp. That is he feels is necessary to bow to the socially liberal in order to earn favor (and votes). And, as we all know, you cannot be socially liberal & fiscally conservative. Because social liberalism is darn expensive.
