That’s the nature of youth, people tend to grow more conservative as they age. Because when you’re young you see a messed up world and want somebody to fix it, as you get older and see more and more attempts to fix it fail and cause more problems you learn they’re best avoided.

Yes, but something has changed. At 30 I was married, had two young children and was working at a bare minimum 60 hours per week. Thus any notions I may have picked-up on my college campus about singing Kumbaya in our Big Socialist Happyland had been melted away by reality.

Does not seem to be happening with this latest generation.

You have to be doing adult things to be considered grown up.
