The most recent instance of using the impressionable young for political purposes. Of particular fascination is the enthusiasm with which so many older (formerly Youthful) rich Leftists have greeted OWS’s call to lawlessness and entitlement to Anything I Want, Now!
“God bless them [OWS] for their spontaneity,” saith wise, kindly Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. “It’s young, it’s spontaneous, it’s focused and it’s going to be effective.” She would eventually go mum on the subject when the rabble ceased to be as young, spontaneous, focused, effective and, most of all, politically beneficial as she had hoped.
Young, fresh, new, spontaneous…What’s not to like about OWS?
Yet another sub-category of Useful/Youthful Idiocy, another chapter in the long-running American soap opera, “The Young, The Mush-headed and The Mindless.”
