Why restrict it to youth? Many adults don't get it either; consider the
recent spate of Millennia lists -- Has anyone else noticed that the
majority of those named on the lists are post-Korean Conflict? Or, the
post-Korean Conflict presidental elections ...?
Youth, unfortunately, tend to mirror their elders. As a one-liner which
appeared in the 1950s puts it: Children tend to behave like their
parents, despite our efforts.
