Boomers were the first post-Western or anti-Western generation, the hippie generation, the first generation not of Beethoven, but of "Roll Over, Beethoven." The kids who wanted to tear down the establishment (including every vestige of the Enlightenment), and who used their numbers to that end, now *are* the establishment.
We will be much better off when the Boomers are off the scene, out of the positions of cultural power and influence. And we will have an amazing cultural opportunity when the generational change of power comes. It's not here yet, but it is coming soon.
