  •  This is such utter bullshit (none)
    More of them would understand it than you think.  You should tell your former professor that she should just retire if she is so burned out that she isn't even going to try to reach out to anyone anymore.  I'm sure it's a hell of a lot easier to just throw in the towel than attempt to make a difference.  It's also easier to justify your own apathy rather than accept it.  

    If you want to get a message across to people, you need to inspire people to get it.  Not just expect them to get it on their own, or otherwise just give up.  

    Look who the people writing the articles are today...they're not today's young people, they are the yuppie trash whose first political experience was under Reagan in the 80s.  Today most of those in college were reared in the 90s with Clinton as President, and with greater acceptance for homosexuals, etc.  Blame the right demographic, it's not current college students who have made the media such a piece of shit.  

    In Britain they admit to having royalty. In the United States we pretend we don't have any, and then we elect them president.

      No one said that, except maybe you.

      I'm talking about playing a pop song in a college class.

      A class that you were not enrolled in. Full of students you never met. Who hadn't graduated and had yet to snag jobs. So how could I blame them for making the media "such a piece of shit"? I didn't make that accusation -- you did.

      Sheesh. Maybe you should get that chip off your shoulder before you start projecting your insecurities onto others.

      Pleasant dreams.
