Criticizing The Gun Control Youth League is Off Limits: Quote of the Day

“I’ve been writing about the inanity and jackassery of generational stereotyping and youth politics for literally 25 years, going all the way back to when I was a young twentysomething. But, apparently, that argument cannot be made independent of the Parkland kids because, in this moment, they are speaking for all youth and therefore, thanks to the transitive property of generational numinosity, any criticism of young people qua young people is ‘attacking’ the Gun Control Youth League. Never mind that young people are as divided on the issue of gun control as everyone else.” – Jonah Goldberg in The Wisdom of Youth [via]
