“The Inheritance of Disaffection”

30stoneWeb-blog480

“Critics have dismissed the nation’s student protesters as mere coddled young people in a rage over some nonsense having to do with costumes or fraternity parties or whatever else the headlines say is the matter. I can tell you that none of these really is at the root. Rather, these and similar events are the catalyst for a revelation – that the rage and sadness these students inherited have been there for years, waiting to make themselves known. The inheritance of disaffection can only really come into its own with the maturity of social consciousness.”  New piece by  Chris Lebron (Yale) posted this morning at The Stone (image: Todd Heisler/The New York Times).
