I'm not sure Ms. Clinton's message will be received well in 2016. If we have our politicians promoting an open culture of honest debate and forward thinking, what will happen to our society? I am much more in favor of our politicians furiously promoting single causes and lecturing their opponents in place of compromise. Here in Utah we have a rich history of hierarchical scolds defending our time-honored values and Washington could learn a thing or two in that regard.

There is an excellent reason college students tend to have more "idealism". Its called inexperience! They haven't lived long enough to figure out real life! Wait until they actually work 20 or 40 years for a living and pay taxes, then they will be qualified to rule the rest of us!

Progress rests on the backs of idealists. The argument you present is completely transferable for defending feudalism. These young folks aren't grateful for the Lord. After twenty or forty years of subsistence living, they'll change their minds - mark my words.
