Default Re: Alienation and Smoking

When I was in the university teaching racket I knoticed that the vast majority of students were actively opposed to thinking about anything not trendy and it made no difference if they came from top end ivy league schools or community colleges. The lives of my students were (with rare exceptions) focused on pop inanities and crass materialism. They were, in short, motivated by nothing more then gut & groin.

They are supposed to be the best of the best (ivy league) and they certainly are scary in the fact that these are the people that will be deciding how the country shall be ran when i'm retired.
