Colleges are producing two distinctively different graduates. One group goes on to build a family and a career. They use their college experience to leverage a job by using their connections, then give an excellent, well framed and articulate job interview, and then show up on time ready to contribute.
The other student profile is not seriously looking for a job. They are looking for a lifestyle.
Graduating rabble rousers are not unhappy about how college let them down. In fact, they have a high regard for the professors who awakened their latent hatred for the American experience. They are angry at our culture, our heritage and especially at those that venerate America. They will tell you it was college that helped them understand their inner turmoil, and turn it into productive social justice activism. For Progressives, college was like going to a doctor and getting an elixir. It is where the lost souls go to get affirmation and to find a movement to join.
Intentional or not, our college system is just as divided as our country. Either you graduate as a worker bee, or you become a social warrior. (Excerpted from The Illusion of Knowledge: Why So Many Educated Americans Embrace Marxism)
