Today's youth, Steger's view
I think the current generation is really very sophisticated and much more mature than previous generations. The students are really articulate.
This morning I met a group who were concerned about the war, but they weren't arguing about which side they were going to be on; they wanted to protect other students from the impact of discord on campus. They're worried about people with placards fighting with each other. They didn't want a big confrontation on either side.
That's very mature. Ten years ago, you would have had a different attitude. They are much more thoughtful today. It's not all me, me, me.
