Young radicals, ilu, but please don't be complacent and think you can just wait out the older generations. That's what the radical boomers tried to do when they were your age, and then preceded to be shocked at just how conservative their contemporaries were.

Honestly, I heard the same refrain from my fellow mid/late Gen-Xers because somehow we somehow forgot how incredibly racist and homophobic our peers were in highschool, I guess?
