This time around, students aren't agitating on campus for a cause like civil-rights or anti-war. These UCLA students are hacked off because of money. Specifically, they don't like the fact that the school is planning to bump up their tuition rates by 32%.
But, but, what happened to all the fresh, youthful altruism that, at least ostensibly, fueled the 60s' student demonstrations? You mean these college students want to hang on to their (parent's) hard-earned money and not be required to fork it over to an institution that has the power to forcibly extract it from them?
Why, these kids are starting to sound like conservatives! (At least when it comes to money.)
