Whilst I seldom agree with J. Peder Zane, I greatly admire his ability to muster a position and then cogently deliver his argument. I’m quite in agreement with his Nov. 18 column “As faux liberals betray freedom,” but his assertion as to the cause is troubling.
Why detract from a darn good article with needless opinions about this being the result of one political party or another? Does he really think this is about “liberals”?
The point is, we have a generation of very intelligent, but very pampered and insulated young people who don’t want to be inconvenienced with thinking that is different from their own. That, I agree, is a serious problem, but if Zane thinks it’s just a “liberal” (or “conservative”) problem, I am disappointed.
Zane has earned an audience, even those of us who don’t agree with him will listen to him. Don’t waste it with silly diversions into politics.
