“There’s a common assumption among the older generations that today’s college students are more swayed by socialism than ever before. There’s fear that this generation may be lost to the alluring temptations of ‘free’ government programs and centrally planned economies. As a college professor over the past seven years, I have not found this to be the case. Make no mistake, the heralds of central planning and redistribution have never had so many mass outlets for spreading their deceptions. I’m just not convinced that college students today are buying it. This is in part because college students don’t really know what they believe.” (02/07/24)
