The Success of "if you say it enough, it must be true"

According to this article on Slashdot talks about just how saddly wrong high school students are about what freedom means.

The rhetoric goes on and on about how important freedom is, that we're standing up for freedom loving people everyone, that you're either for freedom or you're with the terrorists...

But really, if 50% of high school age students don't understand what freedoms something as fundamental as the FIRST Amendment ensures, then what hope do we have for GW understanding the Fifth and Sixth Amendments or the "well regulated" part of the Second Amendment.
