When I was in my 20s and got into general lefty activism, I kept being told by older people that I'd change my mind when I got older and I'd become more conservative.
I've only just realised, this was all about them and nothing about me. They gave in, they stopped fighting, and they became more conservative, because it was easier. They were bought-off by capitalism. They were talking about themselves.
Anyway, now I'm 52, and I'm an #anarchist.
@GwenfarsGarden Wow! Inspiring! I always wondered about that whole churchillian "left when young, right when old" thing.
Further proof that 'boomer' is a voluntary mind-set, not an age range.

A mastodon instance for anarchists and libertarian socialists.
