Why Are Young People Liberal?

Young people are surely getting the financial shaft in this country. In addition to funding the retirement plans (Social Security) and late-life medical care (Medicare) of old people, the young and healthy will now pay for the old and sick thanks to Obamacare.

So I asked John Derbyshire why young people stay true to a liberal ideology that financially enslaves them.  His answer: The young are primitive and egalitarian, like early societies. That, and . . . they’re rebellious.
