No Reason to Respect Elders!

This video was too troubling to dismiss. You will hear former WH Green jobs Czar Van Jones, lecturing a college audience at Colorado College in Colorado Springs on March 3, 2011.

The topic is "Beyond Green Jobs: The Next American Economy and the Politics of Hope."

The message at this point on the video is: "There is no longer a basis for young people to respect old people."

I believe in sharing points of view and that students must learn to question authority and blind beliefs. To broadly claim there is no "basis for young people to respect old" appears to be an attempt to undermine families and their unique values. It would be interesting to hear the audience response.
