Taped on June 27, 1966Student unrest was not yet at its most virulent, but many campuses had seen sit-ins and other disruptions. Buckley posits that a chief cause of the problems is adult unwillingness to enforce discipline. Mr. Theodore Bikel, who had grown up in a kibbutz in Israel but quickly rebelled against its strictures--posits that the younger generation must be left free to develop its own values--even if these do not include what the older generation would call civility. Bikel: "Do you really think that we live in the kind of an age where . . . a parent can obstinately cling to the belief that the values of today are not substantially different from the values of yesterday?" Buckley: "But the parents are right." Bikel: "I knew that you would say that." Summary by Firing Line staff.
