Reply To: KY: Federal judge strikes internet restrictions, online identifiers



I am in my mid 70s, an age when many of us tend to be critical of the younger generation. But my position is different. I believe I owe the younger generation an apology for what my generation has created. In 1966, I was a college senior trying to determine my career objective. During spring break, I traveled to my home town to interview for a teaching position. Contingent upon my graduation, I was eventually offered a job in spite of the fact I had no experience, my degree was not in education, and, perhaps more importantly, I was not subject to a back ground check! Try doing that today. So you see, young people today face many more obstacles in the world my generation has created in the name of safety. Allow me to close with a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
