Prepare for the Paradox


Here goes: There was an interesting article in the NYT. Ugh. Now I fell kinda dirty.

Let me clarify, there's an article that starts off rather interesting and then veer's into the liberal think bubble somewhere in the middle... but, we get the gist.

Why Teenagers Today May Grow Up Conservative

"Academic research has found that generations do indeed have ideological identities. People are particularly shaped by events as they first become aware of the world, starting as young as 10 years old, as a new analysis by the political scientists Yair Ghitza and Andrew Gelman notes. (My colleague Amanda Cox has created an online interactive graphic, based on the analysis, that lets you track the political views of every birth year since 1937. Because race adds a variable, it applies most reliably to whites.)

The generation that came of age during the five presidential terms of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Harry Truman leaned Democratic for its entire life. So have those young liberals of the 1960s, who learned American politics through the glamour of John F. Kennedy. The babies of the late 1960s and early 1970s, who entered political consciousness during the Reagan years, lean Republican. Think Alex P.

These identities are a more useful guide to American politics than the largely useless cliché about adults starting off liberal and slowly becoming more conservative. Like a broken clock, that cliché can seem accurate at times, mostly thanks to luck."

More importantly, the left has brilliantly degraded the educational system so that the younger generation will believe rubbish that their parents and grand parents never would have.
Their strategy and tactics (which include under the table support of lunatic fringe conservative movements) allow them to run circles around us.
