Yeah, during the Us vs They times, the early Boomers (later boomers were still too young at the time) and late silents were for those changes. But the thing is, almost all the activists during that time were silents or even greatest, not boomers. Boomers mostly get the credit for being there, but it was silents who started it and got things done. Once that ended in the early 70's, boomers became increasingly self-centric. Us vs they became me vs you.
The reason for that was that the boomers were from the beginning very individualistic. Many opposed Vietnam and were in favor or the Civil rights movement for their own personal reasons, not on the grounds that it would be right or wrong, mostly to stick it to their parents and the nuclear family concept they opposed. But come the 70's and the first Xers getting close to puberty, and the boomers have evolved into exactly the things they opposed before. They became "the Man".
I should probably start by noting that I don't respond to Youtube videos and usually won't watch them.
Again, though, you're proving me correct. Whether it's to stick it to their parents in the 60s and 70s or the high of joining an outrage mob on Twitter today, people's voting patterns can and will change.
You declared yourself correct without even properly responding to his argument. You've been saying you don't watch Youtube videos for literal months, since the beginning of the "dedicated politics threads" era, really. It's lazy, a cop-out, and intellectually dishonest to act like you can adequately respond to people without watching their response. Just because you're too lazy to watch a video doesn't mean you can dismiss people's arguments.
Here, here's some not videos for you, or are you too lazy to read too? Clicking links in general too much to ask? You want to come into the thread and call democrats bigots, but don't want to hear what we have to say. People getting conservative when they get older is not supported by studies on the matter.
