Yeah, kind of. I mean, it sucks that we grew up during the time where the government wasn't interested in having a college educated populace, but that's not the fault of younger people.
Whether you think that people should have to pay for their own education or not, do realize that you benefit from living in an educated society. More education means less crime, more innovation, better infrastructure, more and better jobs, and more social amenities.
Importantly, college educated people earn a significantly higher salary on average, which means that they pay more in sales taxes and income taxes. Over a working lifetime, this increased amount could actually pay for the education which that person received. In that way, people that benefit from Bernie's program won't get college "for free," it just means you and I will pay for our own education twice.
