ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the interest of young students on anti-Vietnam revivalism in Boston, Massachusetts. The author recalls his conversation with a group of students who asked him about the secret bombing of Cambodia. The author told them that the bombing was not "secret," and the grounds on which it was justified. According to the author, in 1940 there were about 12 million young Americans in the 15 to twenty years range, of whom 9 percent went to college. By 1982, the total had almost doubled, and over 12 million continued their education. The behavior of college students is, rightly or wrongly, taken as a prime morality index.
