Description

Disagreements against higher authorities are vital to the health of nations, allowing those who are governed to openly question whether acts by governments are moral and just, or immoral and unwarranted. The act of publicly voicing opinions and demonstrating the injustices of the world is not a new concept, and it will not likely go out of fashion in the near future. If anything, it is more relatable now than it ever has been before, due to recent events like the rise of school shootings and younger Americans speaking out against the gun violence they face frequently. The most striking of these demonstrations and protests are not the ones that are led by the older generations, but the ones that are organized and carried out by the youth of the world. Nothing is more of a shock to the system, than the young minds of a society confronting and accusing the people in power. One particularly strong example of unsettled youths can be found during the Vietnam War—the collegiate.
