Poor Little Millennials Need Psychological Counseling after Chalk "Threats"?
Oh...and they're offering the poor wittle twaumatized students psychological counseling to assuage their feaw and twembling.
Just think, most of these babies can actually vote in the upcoming election. Scary thought isn't it?
It's clear that one of the important gifts for millennials on college campuses these days is smelling salts to be used when they feel threatened by any ideas that differ from their own or hurt their wittle feelings. As for college administrators...please, just close the campus. Parents who waste their money sending kids to Emory need a brain transplant! And any alumni who write checks to these enablers of permanent infancy, also need to get their heads examined.
But I'm not surprised. When you have young people in your own extended family who have drunk the kool-ade and sound like little echoes of mindless liberalism, you begin to wonder if any young people among the millennials (those born between the early 1980s and early 2000s) can think for themselves -- or can think at all for that matter.
I havn't totally lost hope, because I have some intelligent college-aged grandchildren who act like adults. We don't always agree, but we can discuss issues and engage in Socratic dialogue without either side retreating to the pacifier and "snuggie blankie."
And so, I am always on the lookout for young people (like the little gal in the video below) using technology, not to update their profile pictures every five minutes, and send out name-calling tweets, but to actually express ideas. If you have a favorite young person posting intelligent commentary on YouTube, how about posting a link in the comments section.
