"Don't trust anyone over thirty!"

That was the kind of thing people were saying in the 1960s, when people over 30 would have been born in the 1930s and thus raised without rock'n'roll and the teen counter-culture that was popular in the sixties. There was a "generation gap" -- and the young people knew it. They knew that people born before WWII were different from them.
