I am a late era baby boomer; however, I do not include myself in the protest segment of the baby boomer demographic.
As a youngster in the 1960s I witnessed the country torn apart by protest over just about every social and cultural norm that existed at that time. This was the “Counterculture Movement.” Where did it come from? Did teenagers new to college and fresh out of their quiet suburban homes suddenly decide they had a grasp of all of society’s ills and on their own came up with the protest solution? Of course not. Anyone who has attended college knows that most students are so self-involved that barring some type of extraordinary influence the only thing they are really interested in is dating, socializing and hopefully studying to land a good job.
