ROTC – a follow up
Wednesday, February 1, 2012
My blog post yesterday spoke about the role liberal arts colleges can play in easing the divides among young people, by encouraging students to engage with both liberal arts and technical education, and civilian and military service. And today, David Brooks in the New York Times wrote about the tribalization of Americans. He concludes by saying we should have a national service program in which the so-called upper tribes and the lower tribes serve and live together. That was my point, or at least part of it. Well said by Mr. Brooks. Too bad practically no politician will dare to agree.
