I recently heard a Professor say, “You can only be a Marxist in college, so enjoy it while you can!” I don’t know if she meant that college is the only time it is socially acceptable to be a Marxist, that in the ‘real world’ Marxism is impractical, or some combination of the two. In any case, the implication remains the same— only the young can be radical. I would like to say that this is untrue, that anyone can be radical, that radicalism is timeless, but I can come up with no real evidence to support that idea. Anyone can think and believe radical things, but it appears that when it comes to doing, radicalism is reserved for the youth. What then does it mean to be young and radical?
