actual lines from my PhD application essay
'We truly are waiting for the world to change. I am hopeful that change will occur, as it happened just a generation ago. In the 1960s, a new brand of thinking was born. A culture emerged that was in direct opposition to the older generation's values of decency. Young people were liberated, speaking of sex, drugs, and politics. By now, however, the sex has been had, the drugs have been taken, but a new era of politics is in store for us.'
