“In so-called "March in March" protests, thousands of students in California universities recently demonstrated in outrage over spiraling tuition costs. […] Yet against whom, exactly, are these cash-strapped students demonstrating? After all, their college faculties are unionized, largely liberal and sympathetic to their plight. […] The result is that we are left with mostly liberal students angry at mostly liberal policies of a mostly liberally governed state. The once-utopian visions of 1970s California -- unionized public employees, more state lands off limits, more regulations, higher taxes on the wealthy, vastly expanded social services, de facto open borders -- have at last mostly come true, but apparently not in the fashion anticipated by most Californians of those long-ago times. In cash-strapped Greece, when similar things happened, protestors blamed the Germans. But without Germans, whom can Californians blame but themselves?”
