My man Ron Charles looks at what the campus radicals are reading.
I'm not of the 60s generation (I was liberated from diapers while Woodstock was going on) but some of the big campaigns were for lowering the voting age and having a say on the draft. You know, wanting to be adults. If Charles is right, they college kids these days...want to be kids.
"As young people shift toward the Internet and away from exploring their political activism in books, the blood drains from their shelves. For the Twitter generation, the new slogan seems to be "Don't trust anyone over 140 characters." What you see at the next revolution is far more likely to be a well-designed Web site than a radical novel or a poem. Not to be a drag, but that's so uncool."
Time it was, and what a time it was.
