  •  Well, they are busy (1+ / 0-)

    Some of them have tuned-out politics.  College age students have a pretty good bullshit detector and they can see what is going on.  So, they focus on the moment--enjoying life...friendships, travel, new experiences.  

    Also, a lot are just really busy.  They want to stay in school, but are worried about massive loans.  Graduates have moved home with their parents and are hoping for a job making coffee.

    It's not a culture where idealism is winning the day.  Hopelessness breeds apathy.
