Episode #8: Rishabh Bhandari v. Quinta Jurecic, “Is the Student Left a Big Problem on College Campuses and Beyond?”

IMG_2738Two recent college graduates spar over how alarmed we should be over the new student left activism. Rishabh Bhandari, a recent Yale College graduate, argues that we should be afraid of what the uncivilized new generation of student protests portends for American democratic discourse 20 years down the line. Quinta Jurecic, who graduated in 2015 from Wesleyan University, counters that we shouldn’t take 18-year-olds too seriously, that the student left has some legitimate points to make, and that we should not dismiss a movement as illiberal when it is actually a conscious rejection of liberalism.
