Once Again, As Usual

Olympia, Washington

Once again, my 54th axiom:

Whenever a mass group of young people do something, there is always an old person behind it. If a mass of young men bearing arms take a hill, there is an old man with stars on his helmet behind it. Likewise, when you see masses of young “anarchists,” there is an old man with tenure behind it.

American Thinker, today:

While one of the professors seemed to enjoy his popularity with female students, another was actively involved in fomenting lunatic student protests against the college administration.  One particular memory stands out in sharp relief: at lunchtime on one beautiful spring day – while watching the student protest proceed – one wise Native American student said something along these lines, which I have never forgotten: “You know, we can all try to do good things to help bring about a better world by protesting the unfair and evil things we see around us, but the problem with all this is that people like that professor over there will be running things.”
