boomers

It’s a fallacy that boomers were ever in a position- other than make noise- to change the government The percentage of voters was about the same as now… Even when there was the chance that a liberal such as RFK would be elected he was killed as was MLK and numerous other leftists were discredited. Millions marched for antiwar.but it was more like “antidraft.” Most of us hardcore realized that the revolution was an internal one. Some were lucky enough to be become middle class, which has its own set of binding rules. Once the defining issue of Vietnam was gone and “hippies” were discredited by being associated with Charles Manson, the right wing reared its uneducated and politically naive head and it’s been a downward spiral ever since…blame the sycophantic right wing in this country for our collective downfall…
