<<So you are saying that the baby boomer generation is so cool and hip that the radicalized or alienated youth of today would naturally trust them?

No, I think he was saying that this particular slogan was the slogan of that particular day. Today's youth with come up with their own to suggest the same sentiment. I see it somewhat the same as every generation inventing sex.


The only difference is that THE BABY BOOMER GENERATION thinks it's so cool and hip that today's youth would naturally trust them, despite the clear evidence that they do not. That's why I continue to suggest that in a decade or so THE BABY BOOMER GENERATION will start promoting ancestor worship as a natural and reasonable thing.

The WWII generation saw some of this in the end with books and movies about "The greatest Generation" and such (with a lot more justification, in my view). I don't doubt that we will be seeing more of it from my boomer generation.
