What Freshmen Think

The Education Life section of Sunday's New York Times contained the results of a survey by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of CA in LA (views of 240,580 freshman who entered 340 colleges and universities in the fall of 2008) which showed that 79% of these students believe that "through hard work, anyone can succeed in American society." I fear for these young people (and certainly for my own kids) as the country moves to stifle capitalism and thus the opportunities they long for.
