MAYBE LETTING THE ENEMIES OF OUR CIVILIZATION TEACH OUR CHILDREN WAS A MISTAKE:

Kids today: 4 in 10 call Constitution ‘outdated,’ OK with silencing speech.

Among the key findings in the survey of college undergraduates conducted by McLaughlin & Associates for the program:

  • Thirty-six percent believe the Constitution is outdated, while 52% call it “important.” A year ago, 63% called the founding document important.

  • While support for the First Amendment is at 72%, that is the lowest in six years.

  • More students, by a margin of 48%-41%, favor “speech codes.”

  • For the first time, a majority of students (52%) “now say they share the same opinions and beliefs as all or most of their friends.” Only a third have friends who don’t think like them.

  • Forty percent agree that “it is sometimes appropriate to shout down or disrupt a speaker on campus.”

  • Thirty-nine percent “agree that violence can be justified to prevent a person from using hate speech or making racially charged comments, while 51% disagree. This is the highest ‘agree’ number in four years and an eight-point increase from last year.”

  • Fifty-three percent feel intimidated in sharing their views if they disagree with their professor.
