Strange Sort
"Students need the strange sort
of confidence which seems to come
from exposure to outside influ-
ence," he says. "That's why
speeches, long talks, advice and
inquiry all will be necessary. The
campuses are too insulated."
Tom says that "militant students
invariably show weak understand-
ing of the wide historical, political,
social, economic and ethical con-
siderations which envelop their
particular actions. Further, the
American public rarely gets a
broad analytic interpretation of
student action.,
"Students often suffer from a
sort of political myopia which im-
plies irresponsibility and leads to
less than optimum effectiveness,"
he continued.
