Ain't Gonna Study Anti-War No More

Shaped by memories of their own student days, baby boomers take it for granted that recreational leftism will always be a favorite pastime of collegians. But times change, believe it or not, and student predilections do, too. This is evident in a national poll of undergraduates by Harvard University's Institute of Politics as of June 2003. Survey is conducted on students' feeling of being an American, on U.S. military and faith over the president and the federal government to do the right thing. Similarly, students don't display the generational solidarity that supposedly marked the 1960s.
