Activism among students reached its apex in America in the 1960s and 1970s as the campuses bristled with political activity. The Vietnam War and Civil Rights were first and foremost on both high school and college campuses as the Peace Movement emerged.
Unfortunately, since the late 1980s, many will argue that America has been intentionally dumbed down in order to bring its people more in line with the global economy. There is nothing more healthy for a global economy than an uniformed massive working class ready to be sent to fight on foreign shores at a moment's notice. Here is an example of today's active youth:
The following is a sad but unfortunately true story that occurred in a Government class at a Santa Fe, New Mexico High School . . .
In one civics class, the young adults were discussing the qualifications to be president of the United States. It was pretty simple.
The candidate must be a natural born citizen, and at least 35 years of age.
One outraged girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.
The class was just taking it in and letting her rant, but everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating...
"What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"
They walk among us and they vote! Scary!
