My son is a millennial and he gave up learning how to ride a bicycle. But he is an Eagle scout who likes many other outdoor activities, especially water activities. Maybe try scouting as it certainly worked for us.
Thats a thought, we already spend a considerable amount of time in the woods shooting deer/pigs, making fires, climbing trees, foraging etc, but maybe an organized approach would be more practical.

I think their parents coddled them and gave them too many participation trophies before college so they were already ruined. However, the colleges probably exasberbate the issue

There were many people in ancient civilizations who decried the heretics who sought to apply science to their understanding of the world around them rather than accept that "the gods are gods and we are not intelligent enough to understand".

If you are not intelligent enough to understand the nature of , how do you know that any of your ideas about him are accurate?

"At some point, it turned into, not an argument of, 'We should protest his ideas,' but 'We should protest his right to share his ideas.'"

And that's the real issue here. If the ideas are so abhorrent, then we as a society should be resilient to them. We should easily be able to confirm to our peers that these ideas are without merit, and therefore there's little to no risk of the ideas being proliferated.

You've hit the nail on the head. I don't care if people are protesting any idea, that's great. But trying to ban people from speaking? Really?

I forget which founding father said it, but they basically said polite speech doesn’t need protection....it’s the unpleasant/unpopular speech that needs to be protected
